Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to hcm,
If you are in the mid cycle then a sharp pain on one side of lower abdomen, ovarian region is likely to be an ovulation pain indicating that you are ovulating. This shall continue for 1-2 days and may be accompanied with ild vaginal spotting. This pain is known as MITTELSCHMERTZ and its natural.
If the pain is intolerable then you may take an NSAID.
Again if you have menstruation due or nearing then you should get an ultrasound pelvis soon to look for any organic cause or adnexal mass which can be causing the stretch pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
In that case , there is a likely possibility of an ovarian mass or cyst which may undergo torsion giving rise to a sharp unbearable pain, that becomes an emergency.
However it is always better to rule any adnexal mass or torsion by ultrasound and doppler first before contemplating other differential diagnosis for gastrointestinal causes as intestinal cramps, or subacute obstruction of intestine.
If the pain is persistent and not subsided by NSAID in next 6 hrs then you need to visit your ER for an urgent USG evaluation.

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.
