Nausea and alternating Diareah and constipation also a lot of gas on that side.
Some of these symptoms could relate to IBS or something else but a Colonoscopy showed that this was my problem.
I had a number of diverticular pouches in my colon but my consultant told me I did not require surgery at this stage and I was told to increase my fibre intake.
It is pretty much controlled now and only on rare occasions do I get a flare-up.
