Can being so stressed and anxious cause you to feel a flutter in your throat?

It doesn't feel like a palpitation. It's just a fleeting fluttering sensation. It probably happens at least 30 times a day.

Anyone else have this? I have had it for a few weeks now and it is suddenly freaking me out. I tryed doing a forum search on it but didn't come up with anything. I did a google on it and all I can find are heart problems. I didn't even read them because I didn't want to freak out even more.

Hi. Kitkat nice to meet you. I want to ask you do you get palpitations? When I first started experiencing my palpitations I was getting this fluttering feeling in my throat as well as in my chest. Which kinda made me think it was more of an issue with my digestive tract. Maybe you should just see your doc to be on the safe side that's what I always do. Good luck and keep us posted.
This too shall pass...

Hi nelle,

Nice to meet you too.

I have had palpitations before but they are usually in my chest.

I guess I should be on the safe side and give my doc a call in the morning. I just hate always going there. I know they think everything is always due to my anxiety. It makes feel stupid.

Thanks for support...kitkat

Kitkat have you spoken to your doctor about this? I am wondering if you should ask for some blood tests or something to make sure nothing else other than anxiety is going on. I am not sure if you are aware of this, but sometimes Thyroid issues can cause you to feel very anxious. Its diagnosed with a simple blood test.

I was Hyperthyroid once, and it gave me horrible anxiety. But once on some meds, I started to feel better. Just a thought!

KitKat- I get the feeling you are describing. Mine feels like a....quivering of my throat muscles..and sometimes I get a feeling as though I can not swallow. I will be sitting at my puter and get the fluttering you described and then the -having trouble swallowing- feeling. It is very scary! I just tell myself to RELAX and before I know it that feeling goes away.
