Stabbing pain in stomach and left thigh. Something wrong?

Hey, My boyfriend as been experiencing stabbing pains in his stomach pretty much all day, they have been getting worse though. A few moments ago he was keeled over in pain due to sharp shooting pains up and down his left thigh, they are happening every few minutes and I don t know what it is because between times (despite the horrible stomach) he is fine it s just when the pain begins to move up and down his leg. What is it and what will stop it?

General Surgeon 's  Response
hello mam,
There could be a list of possibilities where the pain in the abdomen can radiate to the thigh.The radiation is because of common segmental nerve supply to these areas.Hence i would advice your boyfriend to get himself evaluated by a general surgeon clinically and radiologically to find the etiology
All the best
