Swallowed glass?

l handled a tiny bit of glass and am quite sure l didn’t get any on my hands as they were big shards and were not shattered or anything. Ate a biscuit a few seconds later and felt a little bit of biscuit against my gum which made me very paranoid that l swallowed glass. Now l feel something in my throat but l’m not sure if l’m imagining it or not, l often tend to get paranoid that l’ve hurt myself when really it’s just in my head. lf l did swallow a tiny tiny piece of glass, will l be okay?

    I swallowed a push-pin when I was younger and it came out fine. However, glass is more likely to slice you up in it’s travels, so you may want to consult a doctor. Good luck!

    I have survived swalling small bits of glass before but if you get any unusual pains between your mouth and your exit tube I would consult a doctor

    you need to get hospital treatment.

    That is something odd but can be serious as your system wont digest it.
    Try to garggle your throat and spit out. if any blood shows, better see a doctor PFQ.
    A shard of glass can make some cuts inside you all the way down and out.

    But, not to panic you , you could just have a bit of biscuit stuck down and a good cup of hot drink should make it go down.

    What ever you swallowed, good luck.
    And DONT panic !

    it will probably work its way out, but if you get the slightest pain, or if you see blood in your stools or vomit blood go to ER immediately
