Go to ER, now. Mary, this is not a question for the Internet. Please go to the emergency room immediately. What you are describing could be a number of things and you need to be evaluated by a physician. If you don't feel well enough to drive have a relative or friend drive you or call an ambulance. I wish you the best.
LLQ pain. Although you are young for the disease it could be diverticulitis. other left lower quadrant causes could be inflammation of the ovary or Fallopian tube or even an ectopic pregnancy.

See doctor. Left-lower belly pain can be a number of things including gas, constipation, but more concerning is diverticulitis. We call this the "left-sided appendicitis" as the process is very similar. If the pain is severe enough that it is keeping you up, this should be included in the differential and would require antibiotics. In either case, see your doctor as soon as possible.
