What causes lower left abdominal pain?

lower left abdominal pain in girls (15)
I had this pain this morning, like a sharp pain on my left side, between my navel and hip bone. It only lasted for about five minutes, then went away, though it scared me some. I havn't had my period yet this month, but I don't get cramps from it anyways. Also, I've been experiencing pounding headaches the past couple days.

Hi.
You are giving a history of pounding headache, left sided lower abdominal pain, late for menses.
All these factors together can suggest us about the many possibilities like:
Twisted ovarian cyst, Enterocolitis including enteric fever and so on.
I would advise you to get Blood- complete blood picture, kidney functions tests, blood sugar fasting and post-lunch, and Widal .
Urine- routine,microscopy, culture and sensitivity ( before start of antibiotic)
Ultrasonography of abdomen.
This will give an idea about the probable causes and will guide us the proper treatment
