Very Sore, HELP!
I suffer from diverticolosis, but have had colon problems for many years. In recent weeks I have been getting seriously painful stabs in my left lower back, and in my appendix area. I have been told that this could be related to my colon? Could this be? the pain is really bad and restricts free movement because of the level of pain that I experience. It feels crippling sometimes and I double up in pain especially with the pain in the appendix area. The pain in my lower back actually causes the pain down my left leg which even makes it difficult to walk. Please Help!

Hi Shirls
It could be your colon but it could also be a kidney stone. I think you must go to your doctor.
