Hi wondering if you could help. Dx of both crohn's and IBS. Wondering if intense and fairly constant rectal pain and pressure (no bleeding) is something that is known to accompany IBS. Has anybody heard of this? Trying to figure out which disease is causing this (so I can get the right treatment), presently in a flare of both diseases and on steroids.

Rectal pain can be seen in these conditions. However it is also seen in people that do not have these conditions.So it isn't obvious what is the cause of your rectal pain. Protalgia fugax is a charley horse in the muscles there that can cause intense pain, but is seen across the board, not just in people with GI problems.Spasms are one option for the pain and antispasmodics may help with that. If inflamation is causing the pain then when the inflamation is back in remission the pain should subside. One other cause of pain is that the nerves that sense the rectum mistakenly report pain when they shouldn't be. Antidepresants can block that problem for some people.K.
