In brief: How bad is the pain?
In general, any pain that is interfering with your quality of life should be evaluated "sooner rather than later".
The list of possible causes of upper abdominal pain is quite extensive; some of these diseases are self-limiting but others can get more serious if left untreated. When in doubt, it is best to deal with these things on the earlier side.
