I recently started trying to become more confident about masturbating, which I've avoided for most of my life. I'm physically female but feel male, so I really don't like touching myself but at times I need it. What I've been doing is rapidly rubbing my clitoris with a finger, which feels neither good nor bad, but when I stop I get the urge to continue. A few times in the past few weeks I've been doing this when my entire body shudders suddenly. Again, it doesn't feel good, but it makes me stop and a feeling of relaxation slowly spreads through my body.
I've tried to research female orgasm as much as possible and it's always meant to be pleasurable. Is what I'm experiencing orgasm? Am I maybe doing something wrong, or can I simply not feel pleasure? Please help, I'm really confused here.

I do think that what you're describing sounds like an orgasm, and I'm sorry that you're not finding the experience pleasurable.
Do you think it could be because your physical body doesn't match with your gender?
I'm not deeply knowledgeable about it, but I am sympathetic, and I hope you keep coming here to discuss things that you want to learn more about. Others here ARE quite knowledgeable and they'll have lots of good viewpoints.
