Has anyone had diverticulitis and crohn's at the same time? I have had this pain on my lower left abdominal/back area that first started off as just this feeling of a pocket being there. Later on it progressed to a pain that comes and goes. Now it feels a bit tender there.

This has been ongoing since probably March of 2017. I was diagnosed with Crohn's after a colonoscopy where they found inflamation on my right side, however there was nothing on my left side.

I wonder if it was just missed during the colonoscopy. I also read that the inflammation markers for diverticulitis is similar to Crohn's and can be misdiagnosed. I also have some symptoms that point to diverticulitis like urinary problems.

In any case, I will get some imaging done soon but I just wonder if anyone else went through something similar.. or maybe have had both?
