  1. 1.Digestive Tract Inflammation (Diverticulitis)

    Diverticula are small pouches that bulge outward through the colon, or large intestine, that increase with age. Diverticulitis is a condition where the pouches become inflamed or infected, a process which can cause fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, cramping, and constipation. It typically occurs in older populations, but 5% of the time, patients will be under the age of 40.

    Likely to recover within months to years without requiring surgery; however, younger patients tend to have a higher rate of recurrence than older individuals with the same diagnosis.
