After my workout I have noticed the lower right side of my neck pulsating with beat of my heart. Should I be worried?

Hi this is Dr Stan and I will try to help you. It sounds like you are referring to your carotid artery that is pulsating. It would not be unusual to be aware of this after a workout, especially a hard work-out. If it doesn't stop pulsating after 5-8 minutes it may be a problem. The better your cardiovascular conditioning, the faster the pulsating stops. You may also notice that you are a little short of breath. This too is normal after strenuous work outs. Since you did not mention any chest pain associated with the pulsations I will assume your heart is reacting appropriately as well. Continue your work-outs! Any further questions? Please feel free to contact me.
