... in my abdomen, almost like a labor pain, except one right after the other. Goes on for several hours. Then it subsides. I feel wiped out and exhausted. Is this the same for others?
What does it feel like when you have a flare up of diverticulitis? For me it is a stabbing pain...

My pain starts as a slow ache on my lower left side and continuously worsens until I start antibiotics. I have also had pain higher u set my ribs which was also a diverticulitis diagnosis.
Just got diagnosed with diverticulitis. Very upset. Really cannot understand what foods to eat it what foods to avoid. Websites say during flare ups, avoid high fiber. Then to start eating high fiber after flare ups. I cannot understand crap about this. Never had to worry about things like this. I always ate right. Always ate fruit, veggies and foods with fiber. Now this! What the hell foods can I eat?
Yes it feels like labor ,but at the end there's no baby !!
My pain was different. The flare/attack starts out as mild discomfort that feels like pressure and increases until it is unbearable.
At first the symptoms are light, I wouldn't even call it pain. But a few hours after these light feelings in the gut the pain comes on really severe. It lasts a couple hours in the severe stage, and then it mostly will go away. But the next day there is a nagging on-going pain, as if the intestine, having been inflamed the night before, is still sore from that inflammation. About 6 weeks ago I had a flare-up like two or three weekends in a row. Then it was not bothering me for about a month. But it came back with a vengeance last night. Now I just have light pain, but I need to be on a liquid diet for a day or two.
My pain is a stabbing pain on the right side. It will come and go. But will get worse if I eat. I will do the clear liquids and a bland diet but sometimes that's not enough
I will end up on antibiotics.
Feel like a stabbing pain on the left side of the abdomen which the pain increases with more time.
