Hi. cool
  After Posting a many posts on this site, (unhappycramper)thinking I had IBS,changing my diet to exclude all wheat/gluten products,drinking Soy,and was diagnosed as not Lactose Intolerant,but now thinking it may be Celiac Desease,or Colitis,or even a food allergy...I need more tests..
  During my many months of abdominal pain,and subsequent weight loss of 66 lbs since last August 05', I wondered if anyone else still suffers from painful cramps located in the Pelvic region mostly right side, ascending Colon area?
Maybe what all this pain is from could be an alergy to Peanuts. I had a Baby Ruth bar (right before a hamburger patty for dinner...I know, silly me)the other night, and thought I chewed it pretty good,then in the middle of the night, I was in so much abdominal pain and loud gurgling noises. Maybe , just maybe that's my problem. The doctor still wants to do an abdominal CT scan,but also thinks this is caused by Stress. The red flag was raised when I lost all this weight and she thinks this is not IBS at all.
So maybe all this is only my Diverticulosis when I eat poorly.
I also Have GERD,but I never get heartburn at all. Thanks!

Its good to know that your doc is willing to investigate further into your symptoms and order more tests as she sees necessary. Where is your diverticulosis located? Mine is in my sigmoid area so my pain from that is on the lower left side. Thats also where my UC is too however my diverticulosis is more of a stabbing pain. Are you getting that on the right side too? Subsequent pains in that area could also be your appendix so make sure thats ruled out, also your terminal ileum/ileum is located in that ares so a CT scan may be a good idea since thats a popular location for Crohn's... good luck and keep us updated.
Take Care
