Go to ER: Short answer is, if you are pregnant, it could be in the wrong (/ectopic) location, which can cause symptoms as you describe, and deteriorate into a life-threatening condition. This is unlikely, but should be safe and be checked asap--also may find alternate diagnosis while being evaluated.
