what kind of vehicle?

check throtle position sensor and look around throtle body to see if something came loose or un hooked sometimes throtle cable will turn lose.

You may also have a build-up of carbon on the throttle body area which can cause the butterfly to stick and malfunction. Also check to see if there are any visible issues with the throttle cable as Papa suggested.
