Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, your symptoms indicate indigestion, Intestinal spasms.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.
Maintain a good hydration with Gatorade.
Start Culturelle probiotic and Citrucel and take over the counter Gas X and Pepcid.
Eat a fiber-rich diet.
Take proper rest.

Warm compresses with a heating pad on the abdomen can be tried.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam ASAP and antispasmodic injections can be advised.

In case of an intense and unbearable pain then Kidney stone should be ruled out and then visit an emergency room.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
