From the 18th July my bowels have been eratic and have had bouts of diarreah. On Thursday 28th July I started with lower back pain and passing soft frequent stool. I woke up this morning with lower left abdominal pain. If I press on the right lower right of my abdomen I can feel pain on my left, like a tearing/stabbing pain. I've opened my bowels three times so far and my stool is very soft with undigested food and mucous. I've had antibiotics for diverticulitis 5/6 times now and had an overnight stay in hospital on iv antibiotics about 4 years ago.
The pain is similar to diverticular pain but so far I have no fever or nausea/vommiting. My doctor is use less and will give me antibiotics which make me worse as I don't tolerate them well. The pain isn't constant but is felt if I move, breath heavy and open my bowels etc. I can't tell if I've ever had an ibs flare as my symptoms are a daily occurance but I'm not convinced it's diverticulitis either.
Has anyone has anything similar or can offer advice on how to deal with it?
