I use this to find temperature distribution within a rod. Now, i will require two boundary conditions in space co-ordinates. I specify, one end as insulated and other end with a specified heat flux. Physically this is not correct. However, mathematically the differential equation requires two boundary conditions. So, can we conclude that, we cannot specify two Neumann boundary conditions in this case?

Now you have two problems: (1) A contradiction: if both S and Q are given, you cannot satisfy the last equation. (2) You cannot determine B. Conclusion: the problem is ill-posed. On the other hand, if your BCs were both Dirichlet or one Dirichlet and one Neumann, then the problem is well-posed, as you may see.
