Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
are you still there/
I am an ER doctor
please type and hit reply
any nausea chills or fever?
is the pain in the lower left part of your abdomen constant or comes and goes
was constant, but now seems to be coming and going
does it hurt when you press on it?
I am confused? yes or no?
very tender when?
I press on it the, no was to when I pass gas
it sounds like you have diverticulitis
this is inflammation of the bowel and it is common in people who have diverticulosis as you do
the treatment is antibiotics
what time is it for you?
I would make an appointment to be seen by your regular doctor TODAY for antibiotics
if you start to have worsening pain or fever or nausea, then you need to go to the ER
you need cipro and flagyl for antibiotics
and pain medications
or you can go to the ER now
it is getting a little better not as bad as it was
right- so I would see your regular doctor today
but as I said, if it gets worse, you need to go to the ER
keep me posted
I hope that I provided you with excellent service? :-)
good. I will check in with you later :-)
