Pressure on stomach causing cramping and diarrhea

I'm not sure if I have IBS. I do have constipation, followed by cramping and diarrhea. I had a colonscopy 3 years ago, and it showed I do have diverticulosis. I am careful with my diet, and recently tried going on a gluten free diet. It seemed to help at first. My main issue is that I cannot have the slightest pressure on my stomach, or I end up with cramping and diarrhea. I wear loose clothing, but if the waistband of my pants presses against my stomach for a short period of time, I end up with the cramping and diarrhea. I know it sounds strange, but it just happened again yesterday. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
