Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

What medication do you take for reducing blood pressure and the dose? When did you last take it? Are you having any urinary symptoms? How severe is the pain? Is this the first time you are having it?

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying and giving an update.

Diverticulitis is one of the possible causes for pain in left lower quadrant. Hopefully you are on antibiotic treatment. Do you have any further concerns?

Thank you.
