Is it normal to feel blood pumping in blood vessels?

I can usually feel my blood pumping in a blood vessel on each cheek, about a pinky's width away from the 'daith' of each ear. I feel it more at times, and also have noticed that at times I can also see the blood vessels in my neck beating (pumping blood, I would hope). Is all this normal?

There is nothing abnormal about the feeling of blood circulation in the blood vessels.This happens during mental stress like anger,fright etc.In such situation blood pressure rises temporarily giving the feeling of blood flowing.
