A more powerful symptom of attack is of course the pain, but I get red and my boss says, "You're getting an attack aren't you?"
I've never flushed in response to a diverticulitis attack but I flush in response to stress! If I'm nervous or stressed in a situation I flush the same way-bright red warm skin from my chest to my face. I cant tell you how many times I've had procedures done and they think I'm having an allergic reaction because I flush from the stress. People who are very fair skinned are more prone to flushing than those with darker skin. I would think that a diverticulitis attack would be a stressor!
I flush like that when I've eaten something I'm allergic too. It's my first sign. My ears feel like the're on fire! I have diverticulitis so maybe that has something to do with it too, but I run & read the label when this happens or it's when I'm sneaking ice cream (baad girl), & there is always corn syrup or whey or something in there I shouldn't have. Good Luck to you, I know how you feel.
