Hi! Good morning. I am Dr Shareef answering your query. You are right about the pain in diverticular disease which usually occurs in left lower side of abdomen. If I were your doctor, I would prescribe you with a proton pump inhibitor and an anti spasmodic for a symptomatic relief, and at the same time would advise you for some investigations like a complete blood check up, a blood sugar, serum lipid profile, serum amylase and lipase, an ECG and an x ray of chest to rule out any other pathology. Also I would advise you to avoid fast and fried food and go for more roughages and bland diet. Further management would depend on the reports of the investigations. I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts. Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
