Thyriod female young causes my throat to get bigger and smaller ty?

Anxiety disorders: are best treated by a mental health professional, not only medication. See your doc to rule out medical conditions and then remember that the pulsing is about your heart pumping, something we all do and need. See a book called "Hope and Help for your Nerves" by Claire Weekes. Peace and good health. ...Read more
