I started having sharp pain in my upper abdomen under

I started having sharp pain in my upper abdomen under my ribs about two hours ago. It comes and goes and sometimes last a min or so. I feel like it’s becoming more frequent and is very uncomfortable where now I don’t want to get up and do anything. Should I wait it out and see if other symptoms occur or is this a possible medical emergency?

Hi, My wife and I were running and she had to stop because she started to experience a sharp pain in the mid-left of her upper abdomen. This has happened to her before without any physical activity. It causes her pain when she breathes. She also believes that her stomach is swollen. We are thinking of going to see a doctor today, but any helpful ideas you can give as to what is causing this would be appreciated. Thank you Nick

Hi,I have recently started taking Cozaar for hypertension as my BP had been creeping upwards - highest reading 164/65. It is now most often is in the 140/75 range. All night I have been awake with a sharp pain in my upper abdomen/lower chest. My BP currently 152/79. Should I not wait for my Dr to open but visit the ER?
