A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

Read and understood that you have a feeling of something stuck and it pains n swallowing. This has been happening for 3 days.This itself is an indication that your should consult an ENT Surgeon for clinical evaluation, to have direct visualization of the pharynx by Endoscopy and have a diagnosis for further management.
Since you have tried a few known things at home, I would advise you to try nothing else, take plenty of warm water and liquids orally, Any anti-inflammatory tablet like Ibuprofen if it suits you and you have at home.
Medical field is based on evidence and the direct visualization gives a perfect diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
