Can't be sure: Diverticulosis does not cause pain, but diverticulitis would (leaking of intestinal content internally). High CH50 means that the "classic and terminal" features of the complement system (innate arm of the immune system) are working beautifully. Low CH50 might be noteworthy, but usually this only occurs when the system needs to be replenished after an illness. Need much more info to address pain.
