shooting pain in left kidney area

Hello there, I am 47 years old female -very healthy otherwise . Its been about a few months I ve been experiencing this shooting /nerve like sharp pain coming from my left kidney area (definately kidney area) - it is lasting a few seconds but it has been kind of increasing -it wakes me up in the middle of the night because its real sharp at times. Sometimes is mild but I still feel it. I was once had an ultrasound done not too long ago for something else and they said my left kidney showed smaller . But my family doctor didn't think this was any concern. This is keeping me wondering why I am getting these shooting pain that comes and goes. Should I go to doctors again? What can this be please and thank you .
