In brief: Diverticulitis
Assuming you have diverticulosis in the first place, the symptoms of diverticulitis would include fever, chills, sweats, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pains usually either in the lower left or lower right aspect.
Diverticulitis comes from a ruptured diverticulum. Diverticulosis typically causes no symptoms.
