I have them sometimes too and the pain is definitely more than in that one area.
I also have Diverticulitis and Hemmorhoids - both are miserable.
I have found that drinking Aloe Vera Juice, while it tastes like a cross between donkey spit and camel sweat, seems to help with my diverticulitis.
Hemmies are more complicated being that they can be internal and/or external. Either way, I would strongly recommend putting your pride aside and going to see a specialist for a consultation. I have dealt with mine for years vowing that I would rather die than to go tell a doctor that I have hemmorhoids. Come to find out, it is very common and in many cases, treatable without surgery.
