It sounds like GG is having abdominal pain and with her urinating more frequently this sounds like she has a urinary tract infection.
Urinary tract infections can be quite painful and can hurt to move ( hence the crouching behavior)
Other possibilities include arthritis ( given her age) which can really set in and cause them to have trouble walking normally
I would recommend getting her checked out at your regular veterinarians so we can look at her urine and make sure her kidneys are also functioning well.
Are you able to get GG seen tomorrow so we can get her urine and kidneys checked?
Bladder wall inflammation can cause a significant amout of discomfort in any species and they will exhibit symptoms like the ones GG is showing you.
Unfortunately, there are no home remedies currently to treat or diagnose this condition in cats.
Good luck with GG hopefully we can get this figured out quickly with a visit to your regular veterinarian
