Diverticulitis Symptoms to Watch For

Home / Health / Diverticulitis Symptoms to Watch For

Fever

When your body has developed an infection, a fever is a typical response. If you have diverticulitis, you need to avoid taking certain fever reducing medications that you can find over-the-counter. Many of them have a side effect of causing bleeding. This could result in complications or a delay in diagnosis. If you’re also experiencing pain with your fever, it’s time to contact your doctor.

Diarrhea

Depending on the severity of your diverticulitis, you may experience bowel concerns due to a small abscess that exists in the diverticula region. Some people even experience bowel obstructions that don’t allow stools to pass through freely. The body’s response is to trigger diarrhea to try and cope with the blockage.
