Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Central lower abdominal pain suggests the intestinal inflammation.

Acute diverticulitis can cause inflammation of the colonic lining pouches resulting in this type of symptoms.

The root cause is bacterial infection.
This can come through food or water.
Sometimes, the bacteria in the colon may become aggressive as well.
Constipation, improper diet are common causes of diverticular disease.
These factors can be addressed by high fiber diet.
Stool softeners like metamucil, methyl cellulose can be used to ensure regular bowel movement.
Probiotics also help to promote good colon health.
Probiotic substitute the bad bacteria in the colon with friendly bacteria.
Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran.
Initially you should cook your vegetables well to make the fibers soluble for easy digestion.

Another possibility can be urinary bladder infection --usually urinary symptoms also should be present in that case.

I will suggest you to see your doctor if pain worsens.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
