I was recently diagnosed with divertcula. I have had extreme bouts of diarrhea for a week. The diarrhea is forceful, painful, acidic and hot. The stools are thin like, and mucuousy (sp), not firm and sometimes just water. I have ran low grade fevers with this, and have no energy whatsoever. The pain starts on the left side, and at times runs up into my back. I have Levsin that helps the horrid cramps associated with gas. I have had of at least 3 bouts a day, and sometimes up to 5. I'm also bloated and am just miserable. I am seeing my Gastro tomorrow, but am wondering, is this a flare up? Is this typical of diverticulitis?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
