Diverticulitis and Back Pain

I have been diagnosed with colitis and diverticulitis. I have had episodes of colitis for several years. The diverticulitis is causing severe pain in the lower abdomen and back. The back pain reminds me of when I had a kidney stone. Do any of you relate to this? Do you have pain like that? Mr doc has me on Levaquin, Metronidazole, and Lialda. In addition I am taking Darvocet N/APAP 100/650 every 6 hours. Thanks for any info.

Re: Diverticulitis and Back Pain

i am recovering from a hospital stay (in august) for colitis and diverticulitis. at the time, i let it go on a bit too long cause i too thought it was a kidney stone. I first went to my kidney doctor, thinking it was a stone, the pain in my back was severe( in the front as well). since i do have kidney problems i thought that was it. Ended up being colitis and diverticulitis and hubby ended up having to call 911 because he found me passed out from pain in the hallway at 4am.
