Long story, short - I swallowed a whole toothpick today and I'm freaking out. My coworkers told me to go to the emergency room - so I did. They took X-Rays and located it in my throat. The doctor said it should pass with time. When I get home, all the online research indicates that this is very dangerous because toothpicks (being sharp objects) tend to get get stuck and cause bleeding, infections, etc. Should I go back to the emergency room and demand an endoscapy or should I just wait it out? I definetely still feel it deep in my throat. Crap!!!!
