Fluttering in chest and heart beating harder

User Profile
I am a 24 year old female. I have been experiencing strange feelings in my chest, neck and throat. The feeling in my chest is almost a fluttering, and sensation of my heart beating harder than normal (not faster, harder). When I put my fingers to my neck to feel my pulse I can feel a crunch or pop. Also in the front of my throat near my voice box I feel a strange fluttering and pulsing sensation. Also sometimes it feels like there is pressure there. I sometimes feel like my heart is skipping a beat. What is wrong with me? Could it just be anxiety?
