When: Ther is not much on your left side like your appendix is on the right side. You are a bit young for serious diverticulitis but it could happen and that is on the left. If your pain is excruciating, blood in stool, have fever then of course go. Sounds more like constipation -round hard poop or straining ? Try MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) in that case. If not better go.
