Ongoing pain and tenderness left abdomen area towards belly button.

I’ve been having an ongoing stinging type pain in my upper to middle abdomen on the left side into the middle area for about a week now. It doesn’t let up. I’m starting to get a little worried what this could be. I’m wondering if it’s gastritis or a stomach ulcer. I do have a history of Crohn’s but mild and thought I was in remission. I see a gastroenterologist every 3-5 years for a colonoscopy and I’m due for one again and the referral has been put in months ago. I saw my primary doctor yesterday and she could see how tender areas were when pressing on it but is not sure what’s going on. She said it sounded like adhesions to her but that it could be an ulcer, gastritis or pancreatitis and she wants me seen by a gastroenterologist as soon as possible. it Is tender if I press on my abdomen area And the pain is mostly to the left and towards the middle by belly button area. It’s a combination of stinging pain with occasional sharp pains, tender and sore and it feels bloated in my whole abdomen area. I’m still waiting to see when I can get in to see a gastroenterologist but thought I’d ask here while I’m waiting. Any idea what this could be? What does this sound like to you? Thanks!
