Definitely get back on the Asacol with the Canasa supps.
Ask for a 'script
of dicyclomine 10mg. It's an antispasmodic and helps tremendously.
Some of the symptoms could be gas? could be spasming from rectal inflammation.....the Asacol should help that too.
Have you changed your diet...maybe something you're having on a daily basis is contributing to the discomfort....are you taking any artificial sweeteners? Sometimes that can be a culprit.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
