Weird thing in back of mouth. Panicking, please help

Hey guys,

Out of nowhere, I was eating and felt something in the back of my mouth. I can move it around with my tongue so I thought it was food, but when I tried to remove it with floss it started bleeding. I can't see it at all, and it's back near where a wisdom tooth is starting to come in. It feels like a long, skinny membrane almost...it's super weird and it definitely wasn't there a half hour before. I'm concerned too because I just moved to a different province (I'm from Canada) and I don't have a health card yet..plus the thing in my mouth is really starting to hurt.

Really appreciate any help, I know it's a strange question and I'm struggling to explain it decently. Thanks!

Do you still have your wisdom teeth?

You could be getting pericornitis from a partially erupted or impacted wisdom tooth.
