Larynx damage from a tortilla chip?

I was eating a tortilla chip when I felt a shard get stuck in my windpipe. I coughed some but it stayed stuck. I swallowed and it went down. Not sure if it went down my esophagus or windpipe, but I can’t feel anything still in my windpipe or lungs, and I can breathe and swallow fine. But now, an hour later, I can’t talk. At all. It’s unbearably painful to talk so I am staying silent. Can a scratch like this permanently damage or alter my voice (as I heard can happen w vocal cord damage)?
