Pulse in neck, near throat and collarbone, have digestion issues and GERD. Help?

For a year now, on and off, i can see a pulse in my neck , to the right of my lower throat near my collarbone. I have no pain. It will come on at different times of the day. Sometimes if I get up quickly or reach up to get something. Other times it won t happen for weeks! It happened once at the doctors office and my doctor brushed off. I have no heart disease in my family. One thing I ve noticed is it seems to happen when I have digestion issues. I have GERDS. Diagnosed by a gastroenterologist . I would feel better knowing what causes this to happen on and off. Thank you Tk

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry much. You are very much clear. The pulsation happens when you have digestive problems. GERD is simply acid reflux. The formed gas pushes diaphragm upwards and congests the area above diaphragm. Thereby congesting the upper body chest area. Pulsation is felt due to this pressure.

Diet control and exercise is the best known methods to reduce the problems of GERD. Also try garlic with every food. Stress is also another reason for GERD.

You might need psychotherapy and other cognitive behavioral therapies. I can help you through telephone. Please do contact me through customer care of for a telephonic consultation session.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
