Enlarged/swollen carotid artery

Just over a year ago my right carotid artery suddenly started looking more like an allied trying to get out of my neck.  I was diagnosed with high bp soon after. EKG done in docs office led to an echocardiogram showing lvh and an enlarged heart. After playing with meds for a few weeks with little luck I switched docs. New round of tests now show no lvh or enlarged heart??  Now a year later and bp has been under control for a several months, but my carotid is still very visibly pulsing, especially when under stress.  Should I be concerned?
