I have only 118 items in my bag, so it is not full, yet I'm being told it is full. When it said that the bag was full initially, I threw many items away. I'm now left with 118 items, but every time I try to catch a Pokémon, it says my bag is full.

I've tried logging out and back in and removing Pokémon Go from my Google account, but nothing is fixing this.

Your item bag is different from your Pokémon bag. Throwing items out will not free up your Pokémon bag.

pokemon bag

item bag

To be able to catch more Pokémon, you'll need to release some Pokémon or expand your Pokémon storage until you are no longer at capacity.
