  • I was sorry to read how you have suffered with IBS/Diverticulitis and food poisoning. I have spent all this year struggling with the same symptoms. The last month I have had a pain in the lower left side of my abdomen and was given small doses of antibiotics but I've now become so ill, feeling chilled and shaky that I have now been prescribed 2 different sorts of antibiotic together so I hope this does the trick. It'a hard to describe how ill this can make you feel. All I want to do is be in bed with a hot water bottle. Thank you for posting your experience, I think it is important to drink lots of fluids especially with upset tummys and horrible diahorrea. Take care and hope you are having a better spell at the moment.
