View Full Version : diverticulitis

Hello all,
I have question for anyone who has info about diverticulitis. In an earlier post, I mentioned that I had been having left side pain. Last week I had ended up on an antibiotic. I was also in bed for three days. Since then, the pain in my left side is much improved. If the pain was from an infection, the antibiotic may have helped. Isn't diverticulitis an infection? I had a colonoscopy four years ago which was normal. The other theory is that it actually is my sciatic nerve and being in bed for three days helped. Any input?? :confused:

Yes diverticulitis is an infection but you must first have diverticlosis and that is pockets in your colon.But if you had a colonscopy and it was clear and you had no diverticalosis or any polips removed then you should not have diverticulitis.
