HR Normal BP up on exertion
When I do strenous work, ie chopping wood and hauling logs, my heart rate barely increases but I can really feel the pounding in my chest and neck.
There is no shortness of breath or feeling of lack of oxygen getting to my body. The pounding goes away after about 1-3 minutes after I stop and rest.
Is there anyhting I need to wory about?
Thanks

You might have an inappropriate "hypertensive response to exercise" a treadmill test or ambulatory BP monitoring may help to evaluate for this
