fluttering in throat
Just started yesterday after being sick for 2 days with a virus, I have a fluttering feeling in my throat and when I breathe out I slightly cough. I checked my pulse rate and my pulse pauses about 15 times in one minute and beats about 75 times a minute.  Is this normal?

This sounds normal.  You might just have a viral upper respiratory infection which can cause coughing and inflammation of the airways.  In rare cases, a viral illness can cause inflammation of the lining of the heart (pericarditis).  This usually presents with chest pain, worse with inspiration and lying flat, about 3-4 weeks after the viral illness.  If these symptoms occur, please tell your doctor.  Best of luck.
