One year ado I was admitted to hospital with abdominal pain which was revealed to be diverticular disease. Since being released I have fairly consistently been suffering from the following:
Sweating - brought on by excercise as mild as walking
Tiredness
mild nausia
craving water and salt (possibly related to sweating?)
discomfort, often very mild in the lower left abdomen.

I am gaining weight and now have daily head aches.

Have had all types of scans, CT and colonoscopy included, doctors say they can find nothing wrong. Have seen homeopath who advised me to cut down on wheat and dairy, I have completley cut out both and after 3 weeks I actually feel worse!
Any ideas out there?

Was this your diagnosis after your colonoscopy? Or diverticulosis? There is a difference.Your symptoms are very similar to mine. I have had 4 episodes over the past year. 3 ER visits, and 1 four-day hospital stay. Surgery has been recommended for me.I am going to guess that the sweating (and headaches) could be a couple of things. One, ridding the body of toxins; two, spasm or waste moving through your colon. I will have pain prior to a bowel movement. Depending on how long it takes for that to happen will determine the amount of time for pain. Usually relieved at movement. Sweating can also occur at this time. And I may have more than 6 movements a day. I hate this disease. :mad:I too feel tired and tied to a bathroom (housebound) most days. Due to feeling housebound, I too have gained some weight. I suffer from mild nausea on occasion, but it's not too much of a problem unless I eat the wrong things. My diet has changed a great deal from the onset of this disease. And stress/anxiety really sets things off badly. Let me know if you have questions. I'll tell you anything I know from my own experience. Beth

  • Oh, guys I can't stand to see anyone suffering!I would make such a lousy nurse! Wanting to help but getting so sick myself from how sick the patients are, too sympathetic : (Makes me crazy. This is what my herbal book says about the Diverticulosismay be this will help some?It is one of the most common conditions in the US. Cause - lack of fiber in dietyou must know what it looks like small abnormal pouches that bulge out through weak spots in the wall of the intestineage range 60-80- half of all Americans that age half this : (symptoms crampingbloatingconstipationone of the easiest ways to resolve this is increasing the fiber intake20-30 grams a day Peppermint oil stimulates the contractions of the colon (drink that in water)diverticulosis=having colon abnormalitiesdiverticulitis= when the diverticula (bulges) become infected or inflamedpresent in 10-25 % of those with diverticulosissymptoms-tenderness on lower left side of abdomenfever chillsconstipationcramping (many of the above are similar to those of irritble bowel syndrome)Dietary supplementsICPCleansing TrioMineral EssenceImmuProImmuneTuneExodusSteviaComfortoneJuva Power (pray over which of these to take )Single Oils- Patchuli, Anise Seed, Tarragon, Rosemary, Fennel, Peppermint, Mountain Savory, Oregano, Thyme, Nutmeg, Frankincense (also pray over which one to use)Blended Oils- Di-Gize, Melrose (same as above)Applications- IngestionCapsule enteric coated 0 size2-3 times dailySyrup 2-3 times dailyTopical Dilute 50-50 3-5 drops on lower abdomen 2 times daily Vita Flex 2-4 drops on intestinal Vita Flex points on feet 2-3 times dailyCompress warm 2 times daily RetentionRectal nightly before retiring, retain overnight to order- they deliverit seems expensive but you use drops at a timeand the oils are pure and very potent- i.e. to spice food with them you dip a tooth pick in the oil and stir cooked food with the tooth pick this is how potent they are.www.youngliving.org/gilalso for a documentary on Essential Oils and Aromatherapysee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqxj0UfE5b0&feature=channel_pageBTW- if you choose to go with another company - just keep the money instead because they will not be therapeutic grade oils and this means they will not heal- no other company in the USA are up to ANFOR standards.

  • Thanks founddog, but you list too many items for healing. That's just not doable for me.They say lack of fiber got me into this, so I have to figure more fiber will help me. And I find it is helping but only from food sources, not fiber products. I don't fit the average mold of someone with diverticulitis. And I find that everyone is not the same in what they need.I also find that you must find ways to relieve stress and/or anxiety. Anyone seeking more information, please let me know and I will tell you what I have done that helps me. Everyone is different, and learning to deal with this disease is self learned in my opinion.
