Question: My mother is experiencing abdominal pain on the left upper side. I assume I should see if it increases or decreases before heading to the emergency. Is this the appropriate behavior?

Brief Answer:
yes ER

Detailed Answer:
I suggest you to see at Emergency.
Such abdominal pains that are unbearable in older adults should treat as Emergency as it can be due to important organs like heart, pancrease or bowel obstruction.
So please do not wait further.
