Diverticulitis occurs when small, bulging pouches on the inner wall of the intestine, usually in the colon, become inflamed or infected. People with diverticulitis often have constant pain which can last for several days. Antibiotics are often used to treat mild cases. Surgery is an option for the most severe cases.
