I am having the same issue, and for now the only solution I found was to use a usb mouse. I think the problem began with 10.10.4, but I am not sure. It only happens to me with Chrome and Steam mostly.

It's very common for one component it's connected electrically to another component to cause noise and other issues. Whether it's the most likely cause is debatable, but Apple's service centers have direct access to engineering and a huge wealth of repair data so they would be my first authority to go to determine what is likely and what is not. Without the ...
