I am feeling like I have menstrual cramps (minor) a pressure…

Customer Question
I am feeling like...

I am feeling like I have menstrual cramps (minor) a pressure very low in my abdomen on both sides. I am a 60 year old woman with virtually no medical issues. It has been off and on since Nov. In a CT scan in June (for a fracture) they noted that I had colonic diverticulosis. Feels better when I don't eat for three days...So I am thinking either diverticulosis or ovary???

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Yes, I had blood work last year and all was good. I have not had a pelvic or colonoscopy because I read that if you have diverticulosis, a colonoscopy can make it worse.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Tough cramps as an adolescent... could it be scar tissue?

It is probably not diverticulosis but diverticul-itis

this is inflammation of one of the pockets

generally treated with antibiotics

is this helpful?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
