Question: Diverticulitis? I am 36 years old and have dealt with severe diverticulitis for many years, since it is not common in younger people it was overlooked for a long time. I have been taking medication for about 8 years now to help control flare ups but I still have pain and other symptoms almost daily and they can come without warning and may last for an hour or two to all days and sometimes many days. I avoid foods known to irritate this but it is still a problem that affects my quality of life greatly. My question is does anyone know what I may be able to do to make this better. Thanks
