Do they feel like uterine cramps, or are they somewhere else in your abdomen?

If they do feel uterine, do you normally experience cramps a few days before your period?

Thing is, you also reported typical symptoms of a urinary tract infection here a couple days ago. have you gotten that looked into yet? If not, and you have a UTI, that may well be why you are cramping and having abdominal pain, and given these additional symptoms, it's even more important you get in and get looked at.

Have you been seen about those other symptoms yet?

You say they're not abnormal, but you're here asking so one assumes you don't think they're normal, and you're getting them days before your period. And again, you have also reported urinary pain very recently.

I'm having a bit of trouble helping you right now because you're not answering a question I've asked twice and need to know: have you been seen yet for your possible UTI?

If you have NOT, then you need to get seen for that, especially if those urinary symptoms are still going on. The cramping may be about your period (though cramps days before a period aren't really common), but it may also -- especially since you are also having stomach pain -- be about a UTI or a bladder or kidney infection, or heck, something else entirely. but with all these growing symptoms, you just need to be seen.
