I am having what feels like rectal pulsations and it is driving me crazy! My doctor has no idea what is causing it and I really need some advice. I have had it for 2 weeks. It feels just like the ***k you sometimes get in your eye, except way on the other end. Please help if you can!

  • You need to have a vasculography done. In other words, check the vessels around your rectum, look for varicose veins or embolism, only arteries pulsate but there might be something (hemorroids) causing pressure against an adjacent arteriole that might be causing the pulsations.

  • Thank you for answering! I have made an appointment with a different doctor (a gatroenterologist) and will ask him about this test. I really appreciate your input!
