Feeling a slight pulse on the top right hand side of head, above right ear. Reasons ?

Morning, During the evening and this morning I have been feeling a slight pulse on the top right hand side of my head, above my right ear...almost like a very slight electric shock but which is not painful as such. When I have coughed I can feel a very light, slight pressure on top of my head around the same place...any advice would be very welcome.

The pulse u are feeling is a superficial temporal artery pulsation, which is a norma l finding. So nothing to worry the mild headache may be stress related. U can take paracetamol 500 mg two times daily after food.
