Did I Swallow Liquid into my Lungs?

User Profile
Sorry this is probably the dumbest question you've ever had but I'm kind of worried.

OK i was in the movies and a sip of coke went down the wrong way, but i didn't cough because it was really quiet and it can be annoying but after about 5 minutes i didn't feel the need to cough anymore.

Now I'm worried that i have coke in my lungs or something, which is worrying because its sticky and acidic and whatnot...

Should i have cause for concern? should i see a doctor? would the liquid have got into my lungs? if so what can be done about it? my chest does feel abit funny but its probably me just imagining it. Also it does feel strange when i swallow but i could be imagining that too.

It doesn't seem that you have gotten Coke in your lungs, but if you continue feeling funny, you might ease your anxiety by visiting a GP.
