In brief: 2 problems

Acute diverticulitis is commonly treated with antibiotic such as Flagyl and clindamycin, effective against anaerobic (lack of oxygen areas) bacteria.
See prior answer for more details. Intestinal spasm can be a part of diverticulitis, but is really a problem unto itself. There is only one cause of pain in the lower GI tract: abd wall muscle spasm. This is underlying ibs, colon masses/obstruction.
