STRONG VISIBLE PULSE IN LEFT THIGH

i am 23, female, i excercise 3 times per week, in normal weight range for my height. However i smoke and have taken the microgynon contraceptive pill for 8 years.
I have recently noticed a visibe pulse in my left thigh which is causing me concern. it does not hurt, however it is visible and occurs when i sit or lie down.
Am i overreacting or am i on my way to a heart attack??
Last night my left arm was aching and tingling as i was falling to sleep. Is this something to worry about or am i feeling this as a result of phychologically worrying about the pulse in my leg?
Please help, i am scared it may be a blood clot and i could be on my way out soon

hello i am 18 years old with the same exact problem.
I just discovered the pulsing 5 miniutes ago but it hasnt gone away and it was starting to freak me out so i googled it and your question came up. I clicked on it and joined this website hoping to get an answer..hopefully its nothing major. Did you ever get an answer to your question as to why you have strong visible pulsings in your left thigh?
