In brief: Asthma vs globus

The description of the blood clot throws things off a bit, but a tight sensation in that area with healthy heart and lungs in a young person typically is called a globus sensation and is the result of a spasming sphincter muscle at top of the esophagus.
Reflux and/or anxiety is the typical cause. Raising the back of your bed so that your chest is elevated slightly higher than your stomach helps.
