Fiber-based formulations appear to lower the odds for the disease, non-fiber products seem to raise them

This may be silly but I am concerned that I may have quite a few of the symptoms and I wondered if there were a few people who could relate their symptoms to me. I have done some research online and am unsure. I have abdominal pain, but I have had it for years off and on. Most often in the morning before getting out of bed, I was diagnosed with Diverticulitus approx 4 years ago.
Lately I have had more abdominal pain, back pain, pain during intercourse, frequent/urgent need to urinate, bloating, constipation or diahrrea and my periods seem to be heavier than normal..
I read somewhere that often OC is misdiagnosed as a gastrointestinal disease. Has this happened to anyone? I have been divorced over a year and without insurance so before I look into somewhere to get some sort of testing, I wondered if I may just be worrying myself to much.
Does anyone relate to these symptoms or could you tell me what the strongest indicators were for you?
