I feel my heart is pounding in throat, what is this ?

I just sat down in bed with my lap top and all of a sudden i felt my heart racing. It was pounding super fast but i felt it in my throat too. I started coughing because it felt like I was choking. It lasted about 2 min and now I am fine but freaked out. What was that?

welcome to healthcaremagic
from the description it signifies some problem in heart and you need immediate consultation with physician/cardiologist
besides clinical examination some cardiac investigations are to be done for proper treatment
do not delay seeing a cardiologist
