Brief Answer:
Please visit the ER for a prompt evaluation and management.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

You should visit the ER. Your symptoms may be caused by a diverticulitis, perforation of a diverticulum and/ bowels obstruction. You may need antibiotic treatment and some surgical help.

Please do not wait any longer.Abdominal CT-scan should be done urgently as well as further blood works(Hemogram, LFT, KFT, Amylase,Lipase etc.)

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
