Vein on the right side of neck pulsate rapidly. What could cause this?

I m a 24 year old male and for about a week now I have a vein on the right side of my neck that starts to pulsate rapidly for sometimes 10-30 seconds. It does it from out of the blue. No warnings. I may be sitting,laying,or walking and ot does it and its very noticable and has me very worried. I place my hand on it and can feel the speed and then after just stops. Its becoming more frequent also
