Hi, I have diverticular disease and only once had a bad flare of diverticulitis. However for the last few days my left lower side has deep aching/shooting pains. I also now have back pain adjacent to the abdo pain, almost like a knife shooting through me.

My bowels are normalish, just some thinner stools than normal. Does anyone think this is a flare and if so should I get it checked out. It is making me pretty fed up!
