Hi Ive been having strange pains since the 8th of Feb.
it started as a kind of trapped wind feeling or a stitch in my left side under my ribs, Ive had it before and if i push on it it goes away but this time it didn't.
then the next day i had pain in my lower right side by my hip, felt like pulling, very deep pain.
then it moved to my left side but the pain wasn't as bad.
for the last week the pain is on the left side near my belly button, first it feels like something is pushing against my tummy then it feels like something inside is being pulled inwards.
i also get the pain in my lower back.
i get very bloated after eating, have trapped wind a lot and get constipated.
the pain quite often comes on after eating.
i have been told in the past by a doctor i have a lot of stomach acid which i was given treatment for but I'm now wondering if there's more to this as the pain i have near my belly button comes on normally the same time as the pain in my stomach which is just meant to be to much acid.
the pain isn't always there, it comes and goes, i first thought it was woman troubles but its not.
Ive done a bit of reading about diverticular and i do seem to have a lot of the symptoms could anyone tell me how they find out if it is diverticular?
and what this involves please?
i just know I'm not gonna like it am i?
i haven't seen a doctor about it yet as id like to prepare my self first.
