Mesalazine sups causing pain

Started 500mg Mesalazine suppository yesterday. The first was so painful sent me in to s spasm and needed to evacuate my bowels within 5 minutes. The second and third still hurt and cause left sided cramps without the urgency to toilet. Is this normal?:(
I use them and have never experienced any pain from the suppositories themselves . I try to use them after a large bowle movement , if not I will need to . My doctor told me that they need to be in there for at least an hour . They have been a big help for me . It took me awhile to get use to them though . Hope you get to feeling better .
Thanks, this mornings dose seems much more comfortable than last nights. Im also on an 8 week course of pred too. I was only diagnosed yesterday.
