Boost Pressure Fluctuation

I have a question about turbo pressure. Since I bought my rig about a year ago, I have noticed that under heavy acceleration, my boost pressure fluctuates rapidly. My boost maxes out around 20-22 lbs of pressure and the needle on my guage flutters very rapidly. Is this a sign of an underlying issue or not? Plus, is there a fix for this issue? Any info is greatly appreciated!
