Only for a couple of days on and off. It is in the lower. The bowel movements are good. No. Just Dilantin. None that I know of. I do have Daviticulosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Since you have diverticulosis, the pain in the lower abdomen could be due to diverticulitis. It can be confirmed with CT scan of the abdomen.
You may need a course of antibiotics for relief.

For relief from gas, you can take probiotic supplements and the medication simethicone.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had the same symtoms about a year ago. CT was done and no daverticulitis was found just diverticulosis. Can diverticulosis cause this and will the medications you mentioned help to expel gas?

I am 24, female. When I was 12, I had a grand mal seizure. After 1 year, I got an another one. After that, I was on dilantin for 4 years. My EEG, CT scan were all normal. I discontinued it in april,2005. Now, I am without medication since then and have not got any other seizure till now. (My brother also had a seizure once) Is there any chances for recurrence? Am I cured?

I`m a 33 year old male, 5' 10" currently 194. When I masturbate, right after ejaculation, I urinate automatically. I believe I may have been doing it for the last several years. But I`ve just realized it was not normal. I thought it may have been Retrograde Ejaculation. But I read somewhere else it wasn`t. I was born with Spina Bifida,( Myelomeningocele) and Hydrocephalus. I take Dilantin and Phenytek for Epilepsy. I also take Zoloft and Celexa for Anxiety,OCD and Depression. Thanks

(which is common for me; one a yr maybe) The seizures started in my mid 30's, I am 43 now. 5'6, 166lbs. Tests show no explaination. In good physical athletic condition. No allergies or other health issues. Had tubal done after 3rd child, developed endometriosis, had a complete hysterectomy. I do not take hormone replacements.
