Dimming light issue in bathroom

I was running the sawzall and the vibration from it was making my bathroom wall light flicker very fast. About the pace that the saw was reciprocating. I'm guessing this is a loose connection or something of that nature. Also flickers when bump the wall or the light. Possibly the issue is just the wiring in the light housing since I can touch the light fixture and it flickers. Any input?

You have a loose connection. If you are not capable of troubleshooting this circuit to find where the high resistance connection is, you need to contact a licensed electrician to rectify this situation.

However, try tightening the lightbulb first.
