Having pressure in throat area, can sense heart beat on breathing. History of asthma. Treatment?

For the past 48 hours I ve been feeling persistent negative pressure in my throat area down near my esophagus and over my shoulders. When I hold my breath or breath out I can sometimes feel a beat of my heart. There is no pain but it feels like the area is being sucked inward. I am an asthmatic, Ventolin has not helped, I ve been on adderall for over a month and I ve consumed no caffeine. I am also dieting and I am not having an anxiety attack.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
you are an asthmatic but at present no breath less ness, or cough so it has nothing to do with the asthma.
it appears to be due to gastric hyperacidity, in which all the symptoms at a time are expected to come . adderal is not a drug to be used for asthma. probably you must be using it as an over the counter drug, as an abuse drug.
When it is used with out pricription it can cause untoward symptoms like this, due to its psychostimulant activity.
There is also a possibility of cardiac involvement, of course possibilities are less.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
