When I had my attacks, as you mentioned, the pain was always on the lower left side. During my worst attack, I could barely stand; much less walk. Unfortunately, I have a very high pain tolerance and a lot of my diverticulitis attacks went untreated which led to me having fistulas to the bladder for which I had to have a resection done.
