Pulsation: You may be feeling muscle twitching or an artery pulsating. The artery would pulsate regularly while the muscle twitches erratically. My guess is that it's an irritable superficial nerve or muscle causing the muscle fibers to twitch. Apparently this a localized phenomenon which doesn't appear to be a serious problem. Generalized twitching can be caused by calcium or magnesium deficiency. See MD
