Our expert says:
your pain may be due to gastritis ( inflammation of the stomach lining) especially if it is a burning or gnawing pain. Constipation can make the diverticulitis worse. Try Movicol, Fybogel orange or Lactulose to keep the stool soft. You should rather see a doctor for examination to determine the exact cause of the back pain, as treatment will depend on the diagnosis
