Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The pulsating pain in the rectum indicates an inflammatory process there- it can be an infection or an ulcer.
This can be a manifestation of Irritable bowel syndrome as well.
You should get examined by a gastroenterologist at your locality, you would need a sigmoidoscopy and would need management accordingly.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
