Can diverticulitis make you feel really sick?

I have not felt well for just about 3 years - lots of nausea, no appetite, bowel issues (mostly loose/diarrhea), some cramps, tired. When this first started, a CT scan showed numerous diverticula in sigmoid and significant thickening of the the sigmoid wall. I had a colonoscopy about 6 weeks ago that showed mild diverticulitis in sigmoid. Did 4 weeks of levaquin/flagyl. 2 more CT scans still showed possible diverticulitis with significant thickening still present. (Biopsy showed no malignancy.) I have an appt. with a colorectal specialist in a couple of days. Could all of this make me feel so sick?
