    Re: Left side stomach pain

    Saw gp this morning. She examined me and my left lower stomach was tender, she said ibs can cause this, but am worried about diviculitis .
    Will have to wait for colonoscopy
    Has anyone had tender stomach to touch with ibs.
    Again anxiety is bad ....

    Firstly you must trust your doctor. They are well trained and experienced to pick up on anything serious. Secondly, my stomach is very tender when I have an IBS flare-up and when the doctor examines me it does hurt. I'm sure that you would have more serious symptoms if you had diverticulitis. Did you mention your worries to the doctor?

    That's what I was going to say. I had a diverticulitis attack last year and it put me in the ER. I was sick as a dog! Add to that 10 days of two mega antibiotics and my stomach was a mess for weeks. A tender stomach is not indicative of diverticulitis as it's typically much more extreme when it hits.

    Colonoscopy booked for the 1st February.
    Stomach still not good, pains on left side but now also some right sided pain.
    Just can’t believe this is just ibs.
    Worried about Divicular disease which I know is very common.

    I have diverticular and yes it is quite common.

    It still can be just IBS.

    Re: Left side stomach pain

    Have had really bad pains in my lower right stomach for two days, the pain is much more severe than the left sided pain I have been having. Feel a bit sick but have not been sick.
    I saw gp this morning , he does not think it’s appendix but I’m in so much pain and scared ...

    Doctor said pain could be a strain, my back or my bowel but not appendix. Need to wait for colonoscopy in two weeks.
    Worried as pain seems to keep moving sides now.
