Many times we tend to ignore symptoms that our bodies are screaming out to us.  When these aches and pains begin to become more than a nuisance, it’s time to call your doctor. 

When you have diverticulosis the last thing you want to do is wait out these symptoms, waiting  too long can lead to bleeding, severe infections, hospitalization and even death.

Symptoms see your doctor;

        if your body is experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could be pointing out a serious condition.

  • Constant diarrhea
  • Frequent vomiting
  • Persistent abdominal pain
  • Continual unexplained fevers
  • A relentless urinary tract infection that won’t go away
  • Symptoms to see your doctor immediately:
    • Bleeding from the rectum
    • Bleeding from the rectum that has stopped on it’s own


Anytime you bleed from your rectum make an appointment to see your doctor immediately. 
If there is a lot of blood, go directly to the emergency room!

 

Symptoms that constitute a visit to the hospital emergency room.   

  • Severe abdominal pain that only worsens with time.
  • Vomiting so relentless that nothing can stay down.
  • Abdominal pain with constant fever.
  • Continual constipation for an extensive period of time.
  • Any others symptoms that you have had for past diverticulitis attacks.

When any of these occur, do not drive yourself to the ER.  Get a family member, friend, or neighbor to drive you there.  If you can’t find anyone to drive you, call 911 for help and assistance in getting an ambulance or paramedic service for transportation to the hospital. 

Please don’t ignore any symptom as minor, and don’t try to justify the pains that are happening in your body.  It is very important to keep a strong line of communication going with your doctor at all times.  The longer you let the symptoms go the longer the healing process will be.
