All day long I've had this really weird fluttering feeling in my throat. It doesn't hurt but it's almost like a spasm in the throat above my chest. It's a really quick fluttering that lasts a second or two then goes away. I've probably had it 50 times today! When I think about it, I get it like 5 times in 10 minutes. It's so weird.

I used to get heart palpitations a few years ago but never had it this bad. I'm not sure if it's heart palpitations or what. I have bad anxiety disorder so it's probably from that but I can't help but worry! I'm super nervous and it's driving me crazy. I had a heart echo a few years ago and there's nothing wrong with my heart (at least back then).

Please help! I'm trying to just take deep breaths and relax but it's hard.

It could simply be a "cramp" of a muscle in the throat.... Drinks a hot beverage...see if that relaxes it...and if it persists, and really worries you, go to a doctor!

Thanks it does feel like muscle tension of some sort, I'll make some tea or something and see if that helps

I don't take thyroid meds. I actually have thyroid issues (hypothyroid, the one where it's slow) but my doctor says it's not that bad so for now I'm not taking the medication
