Can you have chest pain with diverticulitus?

I have been diverticulitus and am on my second attack in a year, when I have the attacks I have chest pains almost like spasms that will last for days. Could that be related to the meds they have me on  or a symptom of diverticulitus.

Hi pat29,
Chest pain is a not a symptom of diverticulitis.
It could be due to someother problem.
What medications are you on?

I am on ciparo and flaglyn and I also take synthroid .5 . I have had chest xray and ekg done about a month ago because of the chest pain. Both test came back normal, and then they did a stress test because I was still having pain. The pain is on my left side and in my shoulder blade.

Hi pat29,
Have an upper GI endoscopy and 24 hours pH monitoring test done to rule out GERD.
