Shooting pain - oily food

I have a sharp pain in on the left side of my stomach (between navel and side) whenever i eat something oily. The pain lasts for a few minutes/hours and then goes away. Sometimes the pain does not happen for a few days if I eat controlled diet. But then if I eat oily food a couple of times, it starts happening.
