I was told I have diverticulitis last yr and internal hemmoroids.  Within the past few months I have these awful spells.  I have bad cramps (reminds me of labor pains) for a couple of hours, or longer. Then, usually, I have diarrera off and on throughout the pains.  This is starting to be a lengthy and painful process.  Is this diverticulitis or something more?  I really don't want to go back to the doctor that did the colonoscopy because he has no bedside manner at all.  We live out in the country and there are not many doctors to choose from out here.  Can anyone offer me advice on this?
