I was diagnosed with diverticular disease 20 years ago and after a period of stress in my life. I'm now aged 63. Since then I had very few flare ups and only mild...until last December (after another period of stress), I had a major one! Got over the worst of it in about two to three weeks, but have never been really "better". I only get a few good days at a time and then a day or two of nausea, trapped wind type pains & tiredness. No constipation or other symptoms but it's really getting me down (this has been 7 months now). I had a colonoscopy in 2 months ago and this just confirmed diverticular disease but no inflammation was found..therefore I was given no treatment. I've tried loads of "over the counter" meds, which are mostly for IBS, but they don't seem to work. I go for walks, try to rest (but I do have to go to work).
Does anyone have the same problems and have any ideas how to get back to "normal". Please!!!
