sounds like you need to get a colonoscopy so you can see whats going on, at 50 they want all to get one anyways, could be IBS, so have it checked out .

Have your doctor never suggested a colonoscopy?  Someone with symptoms of Diverticulitis needs one to determine if they do have this, and at 50 you need one anyway.  With Diverticulitis seeds and nuts can get caught in the little pockets formed by Diverticulitis causing pain and serious infection. You need to be seen by a Gastroenterologist ASAP to determine what is going on.  This is their specialty and will be able to give you answers. In the meantime, don't eat any nuts, or fruit that contain seeds and add fiber to your diet. You may want to ask your GP if he can prescribe antibiotics until your can get in to see the Gastroenterologist.  Also, ask your GP if he can call the GI doctor to get you a quick appt.  I hope this helps and best wishes.
