Don't let this GO! If this has been an ongoing problem, go to a GI doc or a specialty group that deals with Colon and Rectal issues specifically. I was diagnosed w/IBS in 2004 but my Diverticulitus went undetected even though I know that when I was pregnant in my last Trimester I was exhibiting symptoms. I am only 39 and as of 1/3/08 had a sigmoid colon resection because of 3 severe episodes of Diverticulitus (10 months apart) all which led me to a 4-5 day in the Hospital (2 of them were ruptures and one an abcess).
Any pain located in the lower left-hand quadrant of your abdominals should be checked out if the pain doesn't go away. It feels very sharp and keeps getting more intense.
