AND------ THE ANSWER IS---------

Posted , 6 users are following.

like most of us ,I have searched the internet ,here, there ,everywhere USA  , Germany, even the UK  looking for reasons and  

cures for this disease ,that has a very low listing on the Cure list,

I did find it quite interesting, as  the , doctors .,consultants , experts

all said  that one of the reasons for the D.D developing .was stress, along with the usual culprits , smoking,drinking  wrong diets. 

As I don't drink or smoke ,and am a healthy weight, stress is the only

catagory that fits ,seemingly, having read a lot of posts where stress 

raises it's head    Maybe the answer to controlling this god awful disease

    My first and so far only attack occurred after a motorbike accident. Nothing broken but the pain from the bruised ribs and the frustration of not being able to do what I wanted to was stressful. I don't think the paracetomol for 10 days helped either as I hardly ever take painkillers.

      It happened in October. Being on a drip in hopital with antibiotics that made me feel sicker than the actual infection was actually the most stressful thing of all! I don't feel that stressed at tye moment and I have gone back to my normal diet after the colonoscopy. That showed far more diverticules than I had when first diagnosed in England and my doc said I have very bad adhesions from my hysterectomy which puts me at risk for a twisted bowel. At the moment I have the odd twinge but hard to tell if it's the diverticules playing up or the adhesions pulling.

      I went down the " Drip road " i puked for England . thanks to the cocktail

      of anti biotics . Never heard of D.D before it happened, didn't know 

      what it was, or where all the pain was coming from.

    Hi Jacqueline, I think there is an hereditary element to this too, given that my mother suffered with this complaint for many years and my sister does also.

    I also spent 40 years in a desk bound sedentary job with full time hours and wonder if that is a contributing factor given that my diet, drinking and non smoking lifestyle have been reasonably healthy. Alex
