Ok so last night I was eating steak peppers onions and rice. All of a sudden in mid chew I have to cough sneeze at the same exact time and as I do I start to choke and I feel like a piece of food has gotten stuck in my ear someway somehow....

I need some help to getting this fixed

The ear and throat need to be examined for possible foreign body. An ENT consultation is required. The irritation associated with a particle that was previously lodged can lead to inflammation. Anti-inflammatory medication along with decongestant should also be advised in consultation with your doctor.
