Diverticular disease symptoms
Each person’s diverticular disease symptoms may vary and may include:
You can have diverticulosis and not have any pain or symptoms, however, diverticulosis symptoms may include mild cramps, swelling, or bloating and constipation.
These symptoms of diverticulosis can also be caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), stomach ulcers or other health problems.
However, it does not always mean that you have diverticulosis.
The most common diverticulitis symptom is abdominal pain. The most common sign that you have it is feeling sore or sensitive on the left side of your lower belly.
If an infection is the cause of diverticulitis, then you may have fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, cramping and constipation.
This is when the colon gets inflamed as a result of the diverticular disease.
Diverticular colitis is less common than diverticulitis.
The symptoms of diverticular disease may look like other health problems; always see your physician to be sure.
