Hi..it sounds like either....but low in the rectum. If you have inflammation in the rectum (and I'm assuming you do because the doc hasn't given you a definitive diagnosis), you could call and request a rectal retention med, preferably the enemas, but the suppositories could help out a bit until you see the GI.
You could still have CD in the colon (crohn's colitis) and not in the small intestine...so, that in itself will not determine if you have one or the other.
Do call about
rectal meds and start them. I use Salofalk (which is the same as Rowasa or Pentasa..depends on what's available where you live).
Food intake adjustments might help with some of the discomfort...as well, an antispasmodic could help with the cramping/spasming.
keep us posted as to how you're doing.
