Look on the bright side - just a little extra protein. Don't forget to log it on your tracker.

Glad it's gone.

Wow, you have a stronger stomach than me! The thought of swallowing bugs would have made me throw up right then and there. I am glad the bug is gone.

GOEGIRL, you have me intrigued, how do you know potato chips work?

Thanks for all the advice. I think my bug is finally gone for real this time. And just when I was starting to think it might be ok to let him hang around a while. LOL I seemed to have lost 3 pounds over night and can only assume the bug was consuming some of the calories I was taking in. LOL

He was still there when I went out for my run, but I think he may have gotten dehydrated from all that mouth breathing and panting I was doing. By the time I got back home, I didn't have the sensation any more and it's been 4 or 5 hours now so I think I'm in the clear.

Thanks again for all the advice and support.

YIKES - OMG - that had to be so scary!! To be in the midst of a swarm of bugs like that. That's just awful!! Ugh!! I don't blame you one bit for calling that run short. I'd be wanting to cut out of there so fast, myself. After everything you've tried, I'd just go straight to the nearest emergency clinic and have them look at you and get rid of that bug, once and for all! emoticon

Agree with all that's gone before...I would have to wonder if the thing is really still there and alive and crawling or if the sensation is there but not the critter...like when you get an eyelash in your eye....remove it and feel as though it's still there because it scratched the area. It would be a rare bug that could hold on through all the eating & drinking you've done...I do hope you get this resolved soon...yucko!

I agree with Cassioepia, if the little bugger (excuse the pun) isn't gone by morning I'd go to the Dr. I wish you the best, it must be driving you crazy!

How about trying to swallow something acidic (like vinegar / pickle juice)? I am really surprised that the food hasn't pushed it down into the stomach.

This doesn't sound like a regular kind of bug. Don't wait too long before seeking professional help. (I'm thinking it should have died due to lack of oxygen by now).

I've tried gargling but that didn't work either. I've drunk tons of water and eaten a few times. Darn bug is still hanging in there. Eating and drinking sometimes makes him "go away" and I think the problem is solved, then 5 - 60 minutes later, he comes crawling back up my throat. He's one tough bug!

At the moment, it feels like he's pretty high up so I'm doing my best to not breathe through my mouth and to not gag. I'm hoping he'll just crawl up and out. I'm sort of afraid he'll get high enough in my throat and I'll end up inhaling him into my lungs. I'm not sure if that would be a good thing or not. I might be able to cough him out but what kind of problems might he cause if I couldn't?

I really hate bugs.

Cough-cough-cough? Maybe drink a thick smoothie? Wow, I don't know how I would deal with this but I think I would put on some bug repellent before I head out next time. emoticon

Well I have to say I've not had this happen before but what you could try is to just drink water and swallow it . It would be digested just like anything else you ate. Gross , I know. Hope this helps. emoticon

Help! How do you get bugs out of your throat? Went for a run last night and it had rained earlier in the day (first time in a month I think!) and the bugs were swarming like crazy. I've never in my life seen so many and such thick swarms of bugs. And I swallowed about a zillion of them. They were flying up my nose, into my eyes and ears too. It was so bad I cut my run short and I never ever cut my runs short.

I got home and realized that I had a live bug in my throat. I could feel it crawling up my throat. Each time it would get to just below where my tongue bends into the back of my throat, I'd gag and re-swallow it. I ate 2 pieces of bread with peanut butter on it which always helps when I swallow a hair, or have popcorn.... stuck in my throat. I thought it had taken care of the bug, but this morning, I woke up and nope, the bug is back.

How do I get rid of the #%^%## bug? It's driving me insane, plus I'm sort of afraid to leave the house because I keep gagging when it gets too high up in my throat. Oh, and I tried sticking my finger down my throat to make myself throw up but that didn't work either.

Help!!
