Brief Answer:
abdominal pain could be due to it

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.

I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. Usually it does not sends pain to legs but it does cause generalized abdominal pain. Treatment of diverticulitis includes clear liquid diet followed by 7-10 days antibiotic therapy which includes metronidazole thrice a day.
I would suggest you to once visit hospital & get an appointment for a general surgeon to discuss this as well

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
