Food went down the wrong way last night while eating

Patient

Q: Food went down the wrong way last night while eating and it feels like something is still there. I've tried coughing it out and even made myself gag several times but it still feels like it's there. This morning my throat hurts bad and I'm hoarse. Do I need to go to my regular dr or the ER? Is there something else I can do to get this food unstuck?
