Strong visible pulse between index and thumb, causing finger to twitch
For the past year I have been experiencing on my right hand only a visible...jumpy fast pulse between my thumb and index finger on the 'winged' skin between them. It would never happen often enough for me to be concerned, but lately it has been happening more regular. Although now the pulse is visibly stronger, and when I say visibly, its like something is trying to burst out that area of my hand, its very rapid and can last anywhere between 15-30 seconds, then it will stop, and start again.
It's a really uncomfortable feeling, and now for the past two days, it has been happening morning noon and night with short breaks inbetween, I'm getting quite concerned now especially with the visibility & feeling of the pulsating being a lot stronger along with the faster twitch
I think it's just a muscle twitch. It's not a pulse. If it happens again, take your real pulse at the same time and you will find it differs from the twitch. I would get those in that same area, every now and then over the years.
