Fullness in throat

Sometimes i get a fullness in my throat and a thumping or what i call a flutter which i thought was part of anxiety . In the last week i been getting a tickle in my throat with this flutting and  also been having almost motion sickness. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello Jeffcits,

I imagine this could be many different things, anxiety topping the list. I have some cardiac experience so I of course I talk about what I know. From a cardiac standpoint, it sounds like PVCs (pre ventricular contractions). These are just normal ocassional funny heart beats a lot of us have from time to time. I know people who have said that a PVC feels like a pause in their heart beat followed by a lump in their throat and sometimes nausea, a woozy feeling, lightheadedness, or a little bit of chest pressure. Usually docs dont worry about these unless they are happening regularly. Is that were the case, a doc would probably do an EKG and maybe want to monitor a persons heart rhythm for a day or two. Nothing to get to get excited about either way.

I hope this helped a bit.

normally when I get a fullness in my throat area and fluttering it's pac's...while pvc's feel like my heart has stopped and then a funny thumping after each one

I think it all depends on where they start; what's wrong and what you're doing at the time of what happens...I know sometimes I can be really bothered by a string of pvc's yet other times not at all

have you talked to your dr about this?
