pulsating pressure

My 81 year old husband had a stent place eighteen months ago. Since then he has been strong and active as he continues to be. In the morning only he sometimes get a pulsating pressure in his upper shoulders with no pain anywhere else. It lasts for a minute or two then goes away. He has never had heart pain. Could the pressure be related to the heart without pain or more probably muscular, maybe the way he sleeps. It almost always happens first thing in the morning. Last stress test showed ishemia with exercise, none at rest.
Thanks,

Hi,
How is your husband? Does he still experience the pulsatile pressure in his shoulders?  It could be musculoskeletal, postural or referred pain from other location. For definite cause, I recommend that he checks with his doctor for proper evaluation and to rule out cardiac causes. Direct clinical assessment is highly recommended. Take care and do keep us posted.
