Artery In Left Side Nose Puls At Ing

Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs).

Why do my superficial temporal artery and the arteries around my neck pulsate fast when lie down on the side of my head? Is it a problem with my spine
The superficial: Temporal artery travels near the zygomatic arch, the prominent part of the facial bones in your upper cheek. Because of being near a firm structure, it is easier to see/feel. I doubt that lying down is actually making your heart beat faster, but the rapid rate is more observable. Stress/anxiety could be causing rapid beating, but it dserves a good eval with your doctor. Doubt it is your spine. ...Read more
