There can be many causes for this type of pain. It could be due to kidney problem, pancreas, stomach, intestines, muscle, nerves, bones,

RickMD :

The only way to get to the bottom is to have a complete examination by a doctor and, possibly, some lab work.

RickMD :

From what you have posted it is hard to tell if this is something you should go to the ER today for. If you don't want to go the ER, since things have been getting worse over the last few days, I would make sure to see your MD tomorrow in the office.
