Welcome to Healing Well :)
Where is your diverticulosis located? The reason I ask is because the pain from it is very localized and doesn't seem to radiate. I have it in my sigmoid colon which is on my left side and that is exactly where I get that pain, no where else. Diverticulosis pain is very much a "stabbing" kind of pain. Not sure where you are describing the pain... is it in your stomach or abdomen. Right above your belly button is your transverse colon where its very common to get pains from trapped gas. Gas seems to like to hang out right there causing a lot of pain.
Diverticulitis will most of the time cause fever because of an infection in the diverticula. If you have a fever accompianied with the pain I would really suggest seeing someone soon. One of my bouts of diverticulitis landed me in the hospital on antibiotics and a liquid diet. One more bout and doc says he wants me under the knife *shudders.
