In brief: May be unrelated

Feeling pulsations may be unrelated to high blood pressure.
A primary care doctor should evaluate, and see if tests or referrals to specialists are needed. Sometimes pulsations are normal. Sometimes they are felt the the heart has stronger pumping, such as during or after exercise, or during a fever. Other times, one's blood vessels may relax and allow larger blood flow, leading to the sensations.
