Fever of 99.6 for 7 days, left lower abdomen pain, bloated, occasional bleeding in bowel, diarrhea, food allergies, throwing up clean colonoscopy. Help?
Get 2nd opinion: It almost sounds like diverticulitis which may not be detected by a colonoscopy. On the other hand, throwing up is not part of the symptoms unless you have a systemic infection which does occurs in diverticulitis. The counterpoint is that diverticulitis occurs usually in a much older age Food allergy is not associated with a fever. Suggest a consult @ an university center or with another GI.See 1 more doctor answer
