Pain left side

Since Saturday I've had a sharp pain in my left side around my ribs. At first it felt like a stitch or trapped wind, but 3 days later the pain is getting worse. It comes and goes in severity I also feel like I can't quite catch my breath properly. I've not had an injury that I know of any ideas what it could be? I think I'll call the Dr tomorrow but probably won't get an appointment for 2 weeks!

Could you go to a drop in centre or out of hours? I tore a muscle under my ribs was given trying painkillers and told to use a pillow to hug when I was coughing (I had a mild cold!) You have my sympathy
