Detailed Answer:
Brief Ans-GERD with IBS from old Diverticulitis / Under Evaluation

Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.
I reviewed facts of your query in context to your health issues and feel concerned about them.

My Primary Opinion-
In My opinion, in the given situation you seem to suffer from-?GERD with IBS from aggravated old Diverticulitis you have.
Dear, your pain in hip and groin seems to be from Procto-sigmoiditis -/ or inflamed spastic sigmoid and rectum.
History of 20 yrs Diverticulitis confirms the pain from above reasons.
Dear, all the complaints of yours-like-loss of appetite,pain in lower groin/hip/lower stomach- on left side with lower back pain- are from above reasons.

Cause of it-like aggravated Chronic Diverticulitis needs to be ruled by Consults with GI Surgeon.
As you can walk and could raise your leg without any pain, no need to take Aleve,as it would increase nausea.
Other causes need to be ruled out,after getting more details from you.

Reply to specific query of your's -
Q-1-should I go to walk in medical.
Ans-In view of the Diverticulitis history, Consult GI Surgeon/ Physician to treat the current health issues of yours.You should plan the medical check asap.
