Hello i'm currently 17 years old and weigh around 10 stone,I currently have no bad medical history background, however I do suffer from anxiety, and am an extremely health anxious person, this has resulted me having a lot of panic attacks in the past, which used to make me think that I have a heart problem however a EKG done 6 months ago from when this was happening prooved nothing wrong and everything including bloodtests came back fine. However me being a very health anxious results in me being a constant pulse checker and over the course of 5 months, when regularly checking my pulse in my neck I have felt whooshing sensations, however these only last for 5-10 seconds, then my pulse will go back to its regular sounding "thump-thump" beat, however these only happen occasionally, but they scare me soo much, as I think it might indicate something wrong with my heart, as I have researched this and apparently these whooshing sensations could indicaate some sort of bloodclot, But I have no other symptoms when this weird pulse sensation happens in my neck I just need some answers as to what this might be?

Your 10 stone (English system) about 140 lbs (USA), seems to be in the normal range you are not too heavy or thin. So the symptoms appear randomly or is there a trigger mechanism somewhere. You see, if you go to any medical practitioner he/she can only diagnose if/when the symptoms are present. I have a similar problem of unable to describe some symptom that I felt. I am sorry but you do have to try to correlate the occurrence of the symptom with some other event/feeling. Whoosing is a sound to me when I getting an ultrasound and the machine is in the sound mode coming from a valve of the heart. You would have to describe the feeling with some other words. Were you listening to the sound on your neck using a stethoscope?
In other words I am asking you how fit are you?
I also think there may be a laboratory (blood) test that would indicate if you have a TENDENCY to have a blood clot. Check it out.
