My pain is more of a stabbing kind of pain on my lower left side (sigmoid). My bowel habits either constipation or diarrhea is caused by my IBS and UC, not my diverticulosis. Fiber is the way to go for the pain associated with diverticulosis. I also have antispasmodics that help tremendously as well. I don't get the pain often but when I do get it, WATCH OUT!!
