Two days later, and a visit (phone conversation, actually to be completely clear, they cancelled my office visit for what should be obvious reasons, but did a tele-medicine interview) to the Dr. (which was already scheduled for a routine checkup and blood-pressure med refill) I have given the go-ahead to treat this as diverticulitis. Large doses of antibiotics incoming, and plenty of rest and fluids, and no red meat, limited dairy, onions, garlic, or spicy food for a week. :P If it gets rid of the pain, and keeps me from having peritonitis I guess I'll survive.
