Ever have pulsations under skin at pump infusion site?

Been having pulsating feelings under skin/tingling and wondering it could be? It is at the infusion site under the skin and I'm not sure if this interrupts or changes insulin delivery? Any tips welcome, thanks.

I don't know much about pump infusion sites- but I know that the main complication that people see with them would be infection.  These are some of the signs of infection at the site:
• Elevated blood glucose levels (unexplained)
• Redness at the site
• Heat sensations around the site
• Swelling under the skin
• Pain, discomfort or itching

Sometimes you can also have an allergy to the adhesives used or even the coating on the needle- I know allergic reactions can display themselves in different ways.  I'm not sure if the pulsations feel like anything that could be an allergy, but I figured it would be worth mentioning- just in case.

I'd give your doctor a quick call just to mention it- I don't believe it's anything to worry about, but you want to make sure to check it out if it's ongoing.  
Ty so much!!
