Diverticulitis

Hi I was diagnosed with this condition in 2016 and keep having these same problems regularly.

Please can anyone tell if the pain you get in the lower left side and in your back is due to one of the pouches being inflamed as I am trying to understand what is going on because I do not feel ill I have no temperature I am going to the loo It is just this dam pain is immobilising as when I more around it gets worst

many thanks

    Could be headed toward an infection, but w/o fever and severe pain, probably has not reached that point. Head it off by going on a liquid diet for a couple days and low fiber and see if that helps. Also try a probiotic .

    I have just the same symptoms, no fever but the pain and going to the loo, not diarrhoea . I cut back on my eating, stick to low fiber, plain chicken, potatoes, porridge, fruit without skins and after a few days the pain eases. I don't think the pouches are infected but inflamed so antibiotics are not needed, however if I do start to feel worse, feaver, feeling sick, fuzzy headed, then I will ask for some.

She gave me a prescription for Antibiotics but it was late so I could not get them until Saturday but blow me when i got up the pain had gone, I have kept the prescription for use another time just in case it comes back. Still watching what I eat. Merry Christmas to you all
