In brief: Symptoms of tics

Probably not. It could be irritable bowel syndrome.
The classic symptoms of diverticulitis are left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Diverticulitis and diverticulosis(no inflammation) can almost always be seen on a CAT scan of the abdomen and pelvis. Colonoscopy is also helpful.
