I last posted 2 years ago, and sad to say I am still suffering from exactly the same lower abdominal pain and frequent bloating. When I went to see a gastroenterologist last year and asked him if I might have SIBO as well as diverticular disease, he said no and would not test for it, and said that I had upset my digestive system by trying too many different diets over the last 10years. Then he said I should try the FODMAP diet, which I already have, and so all he coud suggest was that I try it again. When I asked my GP about having an MRI scan this week, she said that the pain was probably from the diverticular pouches, but I don't understand why if I'm not having flare up? Does anyone else have this achey abdominal pain without actually having diverticulitis? Sometimes it makes me feel life's not worth living?
