Brief Answer:
can be a side effect of antibiotic therapy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone very carefully through your query

Though chances of it being aneurysm are low yet if your primary doctor suspects is you should go gor 2d evho test.A 10 minute non invasive procedure which will help you to know if its aneurism or not.
In some patients aneurysm can develop as a result
You are on dual antibiotics.Pulsating pain near umbilicus can be due to gastritis caused as a result of antibiotic therapy.
Start taking antacids and pantop 40 mg once daily with antibiotics.

As per query regarding internal hemorrhoid is concerned most of the time they dont bleed and are painless.
I would suggest you to use hydrocortisone ointment locally for 3 months.

Regarding inflammatory bowel disease colonoscopy has to be done to rule out the cause of problem.

Thank you.
