Default Grating sound when I step on the gas pedal - 94 Camry

Hi,

Does anyone have any idea what's going with my car? Two weeks ago, I
drove over a pebbled road (it was being worked on) and ever since then,
everytime I step on the gas, I hear and feel a grating sound under my
foot. My car doesn't drive as quickly as it used to. I'm afraid to step
down hard because I don't want anything to rip/break. It literally
feels as if there's a pebble stuck under my accelerator (or something).
Do you think this could be it? If not, what are your thoughts? How much
do you think it would cost to get it checked out?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

Hard to imagine what you're describing.
The only wild guess I can come up with is a possibility that a rock
damaged the flex pipe in the exhaust and you're hearing that on
acceleration.

Thanks Daniel. I know it's difficult to describe. I'm just trying to
know what to expect when I take it to the mechanic. Take care...
