Hi, I am new this board and hope some of you can help me.. Since Feb of this year I have be dealing with upper and lower abdominal pain/left shoulder blade pain/kidneys hurting. There has also been a change in my bowels including constapation along with bloddy stools at times. Last week was the only time I felt pain on my right side that felt like my appendix. It happened a couple times but only lasted a couple of minutes of so. i went to see my dr who thought i had kidney stones. I had a Ct done that showed I had diverticular disease, so she scheduled me to a Gastrenterology clinic. I went there yesterday and the dr told me with all the symptons i had he didnt think i had diverticular disease and because he thought i was too young. By the way I am 40 years od. Forgot to mention that. lol. So anyway he is not sure what it is. I am having a upper GI Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy done in a few weeks.As anyone experienced any of these conditions? the dr did say that I could have colon blockage.

  • ouch..sounds like a blockage to methey can cause so many symptomsi don't want to sound bold... but being backed up can give you the worst kind of pain... it's like every part of your lower body is bothered by it a quick way that can help you figure out if it's a blockage is if you've had headaches, those throbbing types you get when you're dehydrated.. those are one of the most evident symptoms. anywayhope I helpedgood luck:)
