Visible pulse on both side of neck

Hi, so I noticed 2 months ago that I can see pulse on both side of my neck (on left is stronger), I think I didn't have this before. I was at my doctor, she consider this a stupid question but anyway she measured my pulse and blood pressure and everything was right. She told me not to worry. I am a skinny male, 30 years, 195cm, 77kg. Should I be worried about this? I can feel the pulse also, especially when laying on bed, maybe because I think all time about that now. If this would be symptom of some serious heart problem (clogged artery, heart valve) what other symptoms would I feel? Right now I don't have any other symptoms, yesterday I had some hard physical work and everything fine (no shortness of breath, no chest pain, no swelling).

Normal arterial pulsations more pronounced due to skinny built. If you panic, they will become all the more pronounced. Forget about it and follow a healthy life style.
