Abdominal pain, hurts to breathe deeply. Have IBS. Help

Hi, i am an 18 year old 150 pound 5'4" female. I have been experiencing upper left abdominal pain for about 3 days now. Feels like its right behind my ribs. Sometimes it is very sharp and hurts to breathe in deeply. I have IBS and this is obviously not it. Its not gas or indigestion. I have taken things for gas and indigestion/ heart burn and it did nothing for me. Right now it hurts to lay down on my back and the pain has become very constant. Its not a bruised rib because i have had no trauma even in the vicinity of the pain. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being a paper cut and 10 being hit by a bus, i would say its a constant 3 but when i have the sharp pains it gets to be like 6ish. Please help!! Thank you.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H,C.M.Forum.
You have got upper left abdominal pain. It appears that it has no relation with trauma or gastric related, It is increasing day by day.
Most probably it could be due to kidney pain of infection, or stones. or may be the pain of pancreas.
i advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to go for M.R.I.besides other routine tests for confirmation.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
