If you have persistent pain & unable to eat while taking regular medications, and this has now been going for 1 week, I would certainly be inclined to be worried about a worsening disease.This could be a reflux that has lead to severe gastritis, or an ulcer, or even a repeat attack of diverticulitis.I cannot say for sure what it is without a detailed physical examination and possibly further tests, so I would request you to get a medical examination done at the earliest for the same,Warm regards
