Abdominal pain/discomfort
avatar
eopete posted:
In the past couple of weeks I have had a gradual onset of pain and discomfort on my lower left side of my abdomen. There are times that I will also have pains between my rib cage and abdomen. Many times it is aggravated by sitting or putting pressure on my stomach/ab area (while seated and driving, etc.)

I have been to the doctor a couple of times and also had a abdominal ultrasound done. The ultrasound found no abnormalities. My doctor mentioned the possibility of diverticulosis/diverticulitis. I am scheduled to meet with a GI specialist next week. I am just wondering what anyone else feels like with diverticulosis/diverticulitis?
