sudden worsening in existing abdo/pelvic pain

hey VP. I could use some help. I have a history of treatment-resistant endometriosis as well as PCOS and nasty cysts. I am currently coming off of a fourteen-month stint of lupron and am taking 20mg generic Provera per day.

my pain has been steadily increasing the longer I've been off the lupron, which is kind of to be expected, but the last few days have been REALLY bad. Tonight while at dinner with my bf it pretty much tripled suddenly. like, chewing food suddenly. I am unsure what I'm supposed to do with this now. I don't know if you can still get cysts while on progestin, or if this is the endo suddenly eating my ovary, or something else.

What I DO know:
a] it's not muscular -- I'm on flexeril and 500mg naproxen for a strained trapezius. neither has made a difference in my abdominal pain. which, for the record, is and always has been on the lower-right quadrant.
b] it's not dietary -- I've tried different things and been checked for ulcers, crohn's, and celiac. it's not any of those.
c] the pain is rapidly [as in, within the last half an hour] making it hard for me to walk, talk, and think clearly. this is Bad because my 10 on the pain scale is "being unmedicated for 24hrs after getting my tonsils out at 26."

any input, y'all? I'm gonna call my gyno/their on-call provider and see if they have any advice but I'd like any ideas you nice folks have as well.
