I have a sharp and throbbing pain on the right side of my left toenail?

I have a sharp and throbbing pain on the right side of my left toenail. I don’t know if it’s ingrown or not and this is the first time I’ve felt pain from it. Should I get this fixed by a professional? It only just starting hurting last night and it woke me up from my sleep so I took ibuprofen. Since I just took painkillers last night, I don’t know if it has actually gotten any better or not. I can still feel it if I walk normally, but it feels much better than last night. I tried taking action myself last night and cut down my nail as much as I could on the side where the pain was coming from.

General Information: I’ve had no previous problems with either of my toenails in the past. The skin on the right side of my toenail looks somewhat reddened.
