I've had IBS ever since I can remember. I had a couple of bad episodes several weeks ago while on vacation. Now I've got persistent and increasing pain in my lower left abdomen area, just behind my pelvic bone. And here's another problem. I switched jobs for the first time in ten years and I'm currently in between medical coverages. I thinks it's diverticulitis because of the area of pain, it's much better in the morning when I have nothing in me and I have numerous family members (including my mom) who have this condition. It looks like I'm going to have to go for a COBRA policy for a month and see a doctor. I've been on a liquid diet for the last three days, but it hasn't seemed to help much. Any ADISCers with experience with diverticulitis? I swear there is a little gremlin in my abdomen yanking on my nerves and squeezing my organs. Damn gremlin.
