Thanks for requesting me.

If you do not have high blood pressure then this sensation is not likely pathological.

However, you need to see an internal medicine doctor to:

rule out high blood pressure.

rule out heart valve problems which can also cause this.

rule out thyroid problems.

rule out other medical problems and rule out neurological, psychological problems.

I would start with an internist. We are certified in adult medicine and have to test and train in all sub specialties.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
