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.
yes i know what your going through, i had the same symptoms today, hot, flushing red face, very bad pain on my "L" side all the time, im still feeling the symptoms saomewhat now, stress brings it on also i noticed... so your not alone there.
