Brief Answer:
Surely yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Pain in lower left side since yesterday that has gone sharp since this morning and is constant needs clinical evaluation, examination by a Doctor, preferably a General Surgeon and investigations such as X-ray of the abdomen, ultrasonography and tests of blood, urine and stool.
This will give the most proper diagnosis so that most appropriate treatment can be planned to get you the best results.

Please give feedback and give some details:
Is there is hernia or bulge at the affected site?
Any urinary symptoms like blood in urine, frequency and burning?
Any other symptoms like bloating, nausea, vomiting, change in stool, radiation of pain to the thigh, scrotum or back?

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
