Hi, I have a nasty nagging pain in the lower left side of my stomach. I've had it for 2 weeks with horrible diahorrea. Last Friday I was prescribed antibiotics for diverticulitis but they haven't worked. I've been cold and shivery and felt really poorly since this all began. I went back to see a different doctor on Monday and he just said it wasn't an absess and to keep taking the antibiotics. On Wednesday I was still feeling very ill with this pain in my left side so went back again and saw yet another doctor. He said it wasn't diverticulitis and is going to send me for an ultrasound scan but it's going to take about 6 weeks. I really don't know what to do. I have still got the pain and having diahorrea also feeling pretty ill. I've had a blood test come back this week which was clear and not showing any infection. I don't have a temperature although I feel shivery and feverish. The urine sample I gave was clear. Have any of you had diverticulitis and had these symptoms. My husband is really worried and wants to take me to accident and emergency but I don't want to be a nuisance. I really don't know what to do. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.
