Diverticulosis

Hi, i was diagnosed with diverticulosis this past summer. Had mild pain in the lower left ab was checked for hernia then did a ct where the discovery was made. I must admit my pain is very mild compared to the the stories ive read, I just get this faint feeling, I guess nausea but mostly the faint feeling. Starts in the stomach/chest area then radiates out to the limbs and seems to coincide with the pain in the abdomen. I guess it's my body telling me somethings going on? just wondering if anybody else experiences this, it's really freaking me out.

Just got off 10 days of antibiotics, Cipro, felt better but a few days after finishing the feeling is returning. Not even sure if I had an infection, no fever, but I did feel better taking them except for the side effects. I was hardly eating during that time and am wondering if that made me feel better, lost a lot of weight so been trying to eat more maybe causing the symptoms to return.

Sorry for the long story, have a lot of anxiety over this, sleepless nights, feel like im going crazy.

Thanks for listening.

I felt the same way with anxiety. Atleast you know what you have and what to expect. Keep calm because anxiety can contribute to your problem.
