I wonder if anyone else has problems with sinuses along with diverticulitis. I know it sounds stupid but I have had awful sinus problems for almost a year, much worse when the diverticulitis flares up. As I seem to do a lot of "belching" during this time, I wonder if anyone else has experienced this?

    Hi Shirley - Your comment about sinus problems is an interesting one.  When a person is having a bad bought of Diverticulitis there usually is a lot of gas and bloating  associated with it.  I have found that the bile or acid reflux can well up in my system and cause sinus, headache and even my jaws will hurt at times.

      I found that information on a site some time ago but no one would believe there was a connection. Thanks Donna!!
