Diverticulitis: This could be any number of things including an infectious diarrhea, or diverticulitis, appendicitis or even a kidney stone. Severe symptoms indicate seeing a doctor about the condition as soon as possible, and abdominal pain is not something to fool around with, or wait with hoping it will get better.
