In brief: Is it gas?

Gas pains usually don't last 5 days straight, especially if you've modified your diet.
It could be something completely other than gas: constipation, gastroenteritis, diverticulitis, many things. Horrible belly pain lasting 5 days should be checked by your doctor soon!

In brief: See a doctor

Hard to know from limited information.
Possibilities include gallbladder, reflux esophagitis, gastritis, irritable bowel condition, colitis, temporary gastroenteritis from bacteria or virus, etc. Best to have a medical examination if it persists.
