I have only been on this forum once before and received good advice so I'll try again. Last Friday I was diagnosed with DD by CT scan with contrast. I do not feel unwell or have had any bouts of diarrhoea or constipation but have had intermittent pain( not debilitating) for months. Lately it has become more frequent on a daily basis. It is mainly left hand side but can go all across the abdomen particularly when I walk. My appetite is normal and I take acidophilus 3 billion daily, plus aloe vera. It is now beginning to get me down as I really don't know what to do or where to go with this. My GP said no concerns but I'm sure you should not have pain daily. I have forgotten what it is like to feel 'normal" across the abdomen! I'm not sure if I've ever had a flare up but have not ever been given any antibiotics and the Consultant I paid privately to go see said eat anything you want. I do stick to a very high fibre diet and drink loads of water but I still get the pain. I do suffer from anxiety which does not help. I am not worried that it is anything sinister but I just wish the pain would go away. Any advice would be appreciated particularly as I'm on a cruise in a couple of weeks and would like to feel somewhat normal as can be with this disease. My GP is very good and I am seeing her on Tuesday about the pain.
