Could be a problem: A throbbing at the top of your head may be an indication that your blood pressure is high particularly if this feeling occurs frequently. It can also be due to other causes such as certain types of headaches, inflammation of the scalp or more rarely an inflammation of the arteries to your scalp. Recurrent head pain of any type should be checked by your doctor.
