Diverticulitis and Gastritis

So, after experiencing numerous GI symptoms such as stomach pain and cramping and worsening IBS-M symptoms, I finally got in touch with my GI office and the nurse said that, due to my family history of diverticulitis, my doctor wants to give me an antibiotic - Xifaxan - to treat my symptoms as if I have the disorder. I was on it back in August to treat suspected SIBO and it had little to no effect (but it didn't make anything worse).

She also asked me to start taking a proton pump inhibitor daily for possible gastritis. I had an endoscopy last year that showed reddened tissue in my stomach lining but it was never treated by my former GI so I'm worried it has returned. Since I've been posting quite a bit on the Undiagnosed thread, I thought I'd make a specific thread for updates.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that my GI plans to do a CT scan if my symptoms do not improve or they return shortly after.
