A few month ago I had very bad cramping pain and diarrhoea. I went to the doctor I had a temp and I was sent for a blood test which showed I had some inflammation. The doctor suspected I had diverticulitis and was given antibiotics and everything settled down. I have been for a scan and everything looked ok so next step is a colonoscopy. I have a appointment for this on Thursday I have to start taking the moviprep tomorrow and I feel sick just thinking about it I have a terrible gag reflex. I am sitting here crying. I am getting sedated which I have had for dental work but have been told it is a different sedation and will not put me out as at the dentist. I have seen lots of horror stories I have anxiety and depression anyway and this is making me ill I can't sleep or eat and feel sick. I'm 56 years old and my anxiety is getting worse as I get older. I feel awful has anyone felt like this and how did they cope.
