I can feel my heart beating in my throat

It hasn t gone away and it started about 5 minutes ago. I have had anxiety-related palpitations before, but my heart beat is steady right now, it just goes funny on and off. Two days ago I started taking Epilim and Isoptin SR, could this have anything to do with it? I am female, 15 years old. Thanks No, I know what I m talking about. I feel it beating in my chest and it flutters sometimes. It hasn t gone away for a while now. Also, I am taking those medications for supposed migraine related constant numbness and visual disturbances. It feels like constant palpitations. I have symptoms of numbness over a number of places on my body (both sides), and small dots that come and go constantly in my vision. (They are not something in my eye, they are coming from inside my brain) The neurologist says it is probably migraine, and gave me those meds. I m probably stressed because I have been through a lot of crap this year and I just met my long lost sister I ve never met before.

i don't know what those drugs are but your two main arteries run through you neck (carotic). it might just be your bloods pumping like crazy and you need to calm down. relax girl remember the happy times. seriously take your mind off of the stressors.

i am feeling a few rapid heart beats in my throat periodically through out the day for the past couple weeks. The past couple days I seem to have like adrenaline rushes - minor but often thru the day. I am not over or under weight, mid 40s, fairly active but have a desk job (mortgage). Not a drinker or smoker. Could it just be some sort of bug going around or should I be concerned.

I m experiencing a lump in my throat, although not sore like a cold is coming on. My heart plods in its beating and I feel short of breath as though I m experiencing an asthma attack. I asked my doctor about COPD, but he pinches my fingers and tells me I have good circulation. However, the symptoms persist.
