Please help!!!
I'm 22 yr old male, my blood pressure has been runnin high as of lately (month or so that I know of) just checked it on my home electric Bp monitor it was 152/84 149/80 145/77 139/77 my pulse was 60,53,53...I've had a strong pulse conning from my temples is visible more strong after eating. It's been like this for a month...had what felt to be a sinus infection(pressure above nose, and behind head, and was givin antibiotics and a nasal decongestion with steroid in it i take it once a day which led to recently getting a ct scan on the head a week ago all was normal. Also I've had a chest X-ray, EKG, stress test, heart echo, and blood work all come out normal. I'm currently taking hydrochloric thiazides for high Bp(not helping I'm 4 weeks in on taking the meds) I'm wondering if the strong pulse in the temples are Bp related or something serious...? I'm relatively  active I've not did much today but walk up some stares and eat (day off from gym) and still a visible pounding pulse, doesn't hurt though just wondering should I worry or what it could be from? Thanks so much for reading and would be appreciated for any replys!

Many people can see, hear and feel their pulse. It becomes more so when we are "looking" for it. Once you become overly heart aware, its hard to make the heart beat simple background noise again.

With your heart workup coming back so well, I truly do not think it means much of anything. The blood pressure thing though, I would let your doc know that the medications are not helping. At your age it very well could be something that is hereditary. Also, try to keep your salt intake below 1500mgs per day. I try to keep mine below 1000 just because as a whole we eat more salt then we need.

Working out is great for BP and heart health too, keep up the good work!
