Hello Dr. Rynne I hope you are well on this frigid day. My reason for inquiry is an increase in the frequency of a sudden pain. The pain can is located below my navel and seems to be centered. It can be a dull pressure at times which I have attributed to my diverticulitis. However recently I will get a sudden crampy feeling there......kind of the same feeling you get when you were unfortunately hit in the scrotum! I have not noticed a pattern as far as when it occurs. It will go away as fast as it comes on. I will feel like I have to have a sudden BM but not always. Is it related to my diverticulouses?
