Your concerns are valid. This scenario is suggestive of a foreign body. It could be stuck in her throat, food pipe or worse, even in her windpipe.. If it is, then it would be important to remove it safely.
I urge you to visit a pediatric emergency at the earliest to get her evaluated. If after examination, the paediatrician feels that such a possibility exists, they may advise a upper GI endoscopy or flexible bronchoscopy.
Wishing her a speedy recovery.
