No: Once you develop acute diverticulitis you should stop eating blueberries and other foods which contain significant amounts of fiber. With these symptoms you need a a clear liquid diet which does not leave residue for your colon to digest. Please consult further with a gastroenterologist. I wish you well with your health!
