WORRIED ABOUT DAD
I am worried about my father. The night before last he was literally rolling on the with pain. He does suffer from diveticulitus (excuse the spelling) but said the pain felt to high up to be that. Yesterday he was fine though and has not gone to the Doctor. What could it be - an ulcer perhaps?

Michelle, diverticulitis may cause severe pain and it can definitely be the reason for his pain. The best would be for him to see the doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
