Understanding New and Severe Abdominal Pain

Your lower abdominal pain is less likely to be caused by an infection since you do not have a fever. However, it is still possible that you have "diverticulitis."

If your pain is not from diverticular disease (with or without infection), then it might be caused by constipation, gas, or an irritable bowel.
