Have you got a temperature?

My mum had pain like this. It was a kidney stone. Within 2 hours of getting to the hospital she had developed sepsis and pneumonia and was on life support. She was fine in the end but it was a scary time.

Go and get checked. Always better to be safe than sorry.

Ovarian cyst

Get yourself seen, that level of pain needs investigating.

Seek medical advice asap. This needs further investigation.

You need to be seen urgently.

You definitely need checking out swiftly! Pain that stops you sleeping is significant and the feeling hot and cold combined with pain definitely shouldn't be ignored.

Thank you for all your advice...doc seems to think it could be kidney stones as there was blood in my urine..I'm on antibiotics and Naproxin for the pain...fingers crossed.
