Suffering from Stomach and back pains

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed with Diverticular disease 6 years ago and have seemed pretty free from aches and pains from them.

At the end of 2015 I had stomach pains and pains low down in my left hand side. These miraculously disappeared but have come back with a vengeance. They are there now all the time and radiate into my back up to my ribs on the left side. If I sleep on my left side I wake in a lot of pain.

I had a Colonoscopy which didn't show anything abnormal, and now I am waiting for a Sigmoidoscopy.

My GP thinks it my Divericular disease and has prescribed Paracetamol (no good) and Mebeverine.

Does anyone have the same symptoms with DD ? and any ideas on how to help myself, diet etc.

thanks for reading
