Does your hospital have a Day Assessment Unit? I would call them TBH - GPs are general, they're not OB specialist at all.

It could well be that what you need most though is physio.

Did you get your referral? I hope someone has checked you over.

I had a pain like this around 28 weeks - it terrified me and was so painful I wanted to be sick! But I only had the one... midwife said it was practise contraction. I haven't had one since.

Ask your MW for a physio referral and make sure you get a priority referral, not just a referral to the general pregnancy physio class.

speak to the MW , she should refer you to obstetric physio, you can get supports and crutches if necessary if it is PGP/SPD

i would be wary of taking codeine towards the latter part of pregnancy

There's nothing wrong with taking painkillers, but it's very rare that nothing else can help. And if it is an unstable pelvis, starting physio early will give you the best chance of getting it under control and not ending up with crippling PGP/SPD.
