Hi folks, I hope this is the right place to post this.

Anyway, I woke up at 5am this morning (it's now 5:58am) with severe pain around my stomach area. It's like a constant sharp ache and lying down seems to make it worse. I've been Googling it and most results say I should go to a hospital ASAP. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but I'm on holiday right now and can't afford it (no travel insurance :rolleyes:).

This is quite concerning because I've never experienced anything like it in my life.

I'm a 21 year old active male.

Thanks for your time.
