What is the cause and treatment for palpitation and fluttery in throat?
Hi, I have had a fluttery feeling in my throat off and on for a couple of weeks and /or palpitations.Also a sensation that there is something in there or in my upper chest. Heart rate is regular, no other symptoms. I am hypothyroid for many years. It is not severe, just bothers me and I worry what it is.
Regarding your concern, I would explain that your symptoms could be related to anxiety.
Anyway, before coming to this conclusion, I would recommend performing some tests in order to exclude other possible causes that may mimic this clinical situation:
- a resting ECG and cardiac ultrasound
- thyroid hormone levels for possible thyroid hormone imbalance
- complete blood count for anemia
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalance.
An ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring would help investigate for possible cardiac arrhythmia.
You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
