Thanks for your question.
As you have rightly identified one of the cause for the pain could be diverticulitis. However there are many other causes and to diagnose the exact cause imaging studies such as an ultrasound scan or even a CT scan needs to be done. Glad to hear that your colonoscopy was fine and was done recently. For the cramping abdominal pain you may take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Tylenol and a prescription medication for the spasms such as Bentyl. Therefore due to the severe abdominal pain that you are presently having I would strongly advise you to go to the ER since certain acute conditions that need to be treated immediately need to be investigated and looked for to prevent complications and also for the treatment.
Thanks for your reply.
