This can be acute diverticulitis.
Acute diverticulitis is caused by the bacterial infection of the colon pouches.Sometimes,there can be perforation of the pouch causing peritonitis from spread of infection.The root cause is bacterial infection.This can come through food or water.Sometimes, the bacteria in the colon may become aggressive as well.Probiotics also help to promote good colon health.Probiotics substitute the bad bacteria in the colon with friendly bacteria.Culturelle 30 counts capsules twice daily will be great.
You should see your doctor soon or go to the ER if possible.
