Wife had severe abdominal cramps last night, found out she's pregnant today

Last night, my wife suffered severe cramps in her bladder region that almost caused her to pass out. We called out the paramedics, they tested her and found nothing seriously wrong and the pain gradually subsided in a couple of hours. After seeing a doctor today, she took a pregnancy test and it said she's three weeks pregnant. This confused her a little, since a couple of weeks back she had an early, sudden period, but actually many of the signs of pregnancy were there. She's also had some other unexplained symptoms, such as a flare-up of a strange chronic eye condition that she has (These are spots on her retina, which have never been properly diagnosed but have always seemed to be hormone-related) and unexplained muscle pain in her foot and knee.

Obviously, with the pain we are concerned as to whether it is ectopic or there is something else going wrong with it. Do ectopic pregnancies present this early? Could the pregnancy test be wrong in the case of an ectopic pregnancy and she actually be further along? If it is ectopic or there are other complications, how urgent is the situation? She will see a doctor again over the next couple of days, but is this situation more time-critical than that?
