I am 42 years old & I was diagnosed with diverticula disease last year April. I was shocked as I thought my symptoms were IBS.
I changed my eating habits & my symptoms improved.
I think I've had this condition for many years as I've had many episodes of left sided pain lower quadrant pain and accompanied by constipation.
I have found that wine and an erratic diet triggers my symptoms.My question is this how long does the pain last? My pain is going on almost 2 weeks. It did not last so long when I was younger. I've had No fever, no blood in stool. Just pain & loss of appetite.
I have taken senokot however I just feel my bowels don't empty fully.p & it causes cramps. I've started to change my eating habits & exercise but this pain is getting me down.
Does anyone have a similar experience of ongoing pain.
Ive ordered a stool softer psyllium husk (as recommended by another reader), I also ordered probiotics & Omega (for its anti inflammatory qualities)
I want to get well. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
