Funny, pulsing feeling on temple area while chewing. Cause?

Hi, I have recently started to experience a funny pulsing feeling on the upper left side of my face near my temple area. The feeling occurs when I am chewing regular food and gum. There is little to no pain just the pulsing sensation. The feeling is not constant while chewing and will last for a few minutes when I stop chewing.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

You are very eager to know these things, and I presume that you are a person who wants to know things. Good. But don't worry. Our face skin is so tightly drawn around the skull that you can feel movements anywhere in one area easily creates some other movements somewhere else. another example of this is by moving your jaw bones you can move ears and eyebrows also. By moving skin around back of head, you can move your ears. Try.
You don't have to worry unless there is any pain of uneasy feelings.
Good luck.

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
From history it suggests that you might be having some problem in TM joint or with wisdom tooth.
If there is lax TM joint muscles or ligaments or mild sublaxation of the joint can cause this problem.
Newly erupted wisdom tooth can give this problem as well.
consult oral surgeon and get examined.
Ok and take care.
