Not Likely: A pulse felt in the buttock area may be the blood vessel sensation. Symptoms of high blood pressure start weith headaches, blurred vision etc.If you have concerns about your BP, you should get it checked out a few times at a nearby drug store to reassure yourself and consult your PCP if any doubt. Feel good!
