Since Sunday, I thought I had heartburn and took pepto.  3 days later, I feel like I have something in my chest, but can really feel it when I make a motion to swallow and when I my throat as well as in my chest.  It feels like there is something there...did you ever eat something and it gets drink something it goes away.  This hasnt.  I am in no pain and I can eat and drink with no problem, but I still have these symptoms.  Should I be worried?
