It sounds like it may be Canon A waves, which are harmless. Most people have premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) at one time or another. If the timing of the PVC is such that the atria and ventricle attempt to contract at the same time, the blood in the contracting atria can't pass through the closed tricuspid valve and so is pumped backwards (the back-pressure pulse is called a Canon A wave), in the wrong direction towards the head.  This is often felt as a thump or tickling in the throat (in the jugular vein).

Both stress and gastric related problems often bring on pvcs. If you continue to experience these sensations, you probably should see your doctor to check it out. It will likely be harmless but best to make sure.
