In brief: Get checked,,,

If this pain is very bad it's best to go to the doctor or hospital and get checked/examined.
It might be stones or it might be a urinary tract infection that has spread to the bladder and to the kidneys, or it might be the endometriosis. But you won't know unless you get checked and get tested, so see the doctor promptly. Ibuprofen helps pain, but might mask a fever, so please get checked.
