I get this often Mary. Welcome to the board by the way. There's another post on here somewhere that talked about this recently. My carotid artery on the left side of my neck will sometimes feel like its going to burst. There's just a lot of pressure feeling. I had a carotid ultrasound and everything was normal. I think I read somewhere that the arteries will expand when trying to force blood to your brain if you aren't getting enough bloodflow/oxygen to your head. So my pain normally comes when my blood pressure is low. It's kind of a scary feeling though!
