I started a calorie controlled (low carb) diet and about about five weeks ago with lots of fruit and vedge - about two weeks in I had a bout of constipation so I introduced bran flakes for breakfast which seemed to help and everything seemed to get back to normal - eleven days ago I woke up with an excruciating pain in my left side - I thought I had pulled a muscle and it was so bad I had to take pain killers since then I have been waking up at about 5am with the pain which continues till about lunchtime and then turns to a dull ache till it starts all over again. My bowels movements swing between urgent need to go and constipated but to be honest I have no appetite so there is not much going in - Dr Google thanks it could be Diverticulitus.
I called my surgery on Monday and was given a none urgent appointment for next Tuesday - but to be honest i am starting to worry as the symptoms are not showing any sign of getting any better - My question is should I see my doctor more quickly or am i OK to wait
until Tuesday evening - In the meantime can anyone recommend a diet that might help with my symptoms until then.
