For me the pain on my right abdomen was a duodenal ulcer starting to form and two days later came the pain in the right abdomen.I have had a foot of my colon removes becauce the diverticulitis became so bad.My diverticulitis is back and in the same area so now i have to be extra careful not to let that happen again.One of the most important things you need to do is get your blood pressure down;if you are over weight; lose it ; your life depends on it.If you havent already stopped drinking coffee or anything with caffiene; you need to.If you have anxity get treatment .I am also new to this forum and looking for a answer; good luck and God bless.
