See below: I would not be overaly concerned - simple things - like constipation could cause these symptoms - but I would make and appointment to see my doctor, and be evaluated for possible more serious conditions

GI tract issues: Has your stooling pattern changed? Constipation? How severe is the abdominal pain? I am wondering if you wrote the recent posts about ulcers? How much fiber is in your diet? If you take in fiber- how well do you hydrate? Severe abdominal pain warrants urgent assessment. However, if you have been experiencing lesser pain for weeks, that also warrants assessment (routinely)
