Nausea


Many diverticulitis sufferers suffer from nausea before/during an attack that may/may not result in vomiting. This symptom is triggered when inflamed or infected cells in the large intestine release certain chemicals. The brain receives the chemical signals and triggers a nauseous sensation to stop the sufferer from eating more food because they have a “compromised” digestive tract. Since nausea is associated with many diseases, it is must come alongside other symptoms of diverticulitis. Persistent nausea should be reported immediately.
