heya i was diagnosed with diverticulitis 5 months ago in hospital and i am 100% certain i am going through another flare atm. started 6 days ago got woken up from my sleep by horrible pain and stomach upset. the pain has eased a little bit but my stomach is still upset. i went on the liquid diet and now slowly eating light solids. anyways my gp ordered a blood test and my results were wbc 11.8 meant to be 11 or under and crp was 5.9 meant to be under 3 so only slightly over. which to me doesn't scream infection. doctor gave me antibiotics but i am not sure if i 100% need them and i am scared to take them because last time they gave me antibiotics for another episode my liver function went through the roof and was bad. do we need antibiotics everytime ? i also dont have a fever.
