In brief: See a doctor

Pain killers mask pain and that is your body telling you something is wrong.
Get a proper diagnosis from your doctor and she will run the tests needed or start you on the correct medication. Avoid alcohol and pain pills as they cause stomach pain as a side effect.

In brief: If pain is severe

would recommend emergency evaluation.
Don't know which pain medication you are referring to.
