    I think I know what you are talking about. I have experienced so much stress in a short period of time (maybe something at work, or could be home too), and my throat actually feels like you described. I also have heart palpatations.

    When I get extremely stressed, I almost lose my voice too.

    Maybe some others will post, and let you know if this has happened to them too.

    I hope things get better for you before long.

    I do believe stress can cause palpitations, but the best thing is to see your doctor. They can do a 24 hour Holter Monitor test to see what is going on. You will feel better knowing if it is not serious.

    There are medications that can help - I used to take beta blockers that calm your heart. They block the effects of adrenalin to your heart.

    I know exactly what your going through, no fun, they are really crazy!
    I've had them for 18 years.
    I have since, been throughly tested over the years, and had found them to be benign, thank God!
    They will come and go, but only when very stressed or very tired.
    I cannot have any caffiene at all, it really worsens them.
    I had them as you describe about 3 days in a row last week, and none since!
    Like I said they are crazy, you don't know when they'll hit ya, I hope you will find the cause, and get to feeling better soon.
    I use to get so hyper, and worked up with mine, but since I know now its not something bad wrong with my heart, I have learned to live with them, even though, I don't like them, ofcourse.
    50mg. of Toprol XL has helped calm them down, consideribly,
