Neurologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Is it like muscle twitches ? This is quite non specific and can happen with anxiety, electrolytes disturbance or even sometimes without any specific reason. Pulsating biceps isnt an indication of heart pain so relax about that. Heart pain or angina would cause gripping chest pain that can sometimes radiate to neck/ jaws or left arm. Mere pulsating doesnt merit any further investigation unless its too bothering or frequent -like muscle fasciculations/ twitching.

I hope it answered your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries.
