It depends/see Dr.,,: It depends on several factors. First, it could be your period as you've got cramps and lower pains. If it's not that time and especially if it gets worse, you should see your doctor quick as it might be the start of possible appendicitis. You've got headaches and other pains which may or may not get worse, so it's a good idea to see your dr. Soon anyway to be sure. Best of luck.

Hard to say: To determine the cause of abdominal pain requires more history and a good exam, but you seem relatively calm. Most things that cause sharp pain for a short period of time are not serious. But if you have other symptoms like fever, nausea, vomiting, or if the pain gets worse or changes intensity or location, it would be good to see someone. Anything in particular you are worried about?
