    I was getting ready to go to the gym today and was taking a multiv. I popped it in my mouth and got a mouthful of water. The motherfucker went down my throat sideways and got stuck. I tried to cough it back up again but it got even more stuck:wtc: I could barely breath but my brother called the paramedics for me, they arrived in like 30 seconds and were able to get that sucker out. i will never take fish oil pills or multiv's again tho:)

    Cliffs: pills are bad

    I'm tempted to call BS.......paramedics arrived in 30 seconds?

    Plus, you can breathe when a pill goes down "sideways" unless it went down sideways down your trachea.

    The Heimlich maneuver is easy, your family should learn it. You can even perform auto-heimlich on yourself
