In brief: Yes it can.

These symptoms are usually due to excessive spasm of the intestines.
In the long run, increasing fiber in the diet can decrease the symptoms significantly. Sometimes fiber supplements help as well. if you do take fiber supplements, be sure to increase your fluid intake as well. Good luck.
