It could be due to diverticulitis or IBD.

I had similar symptoms about 2 years ago. It turned out to be diverticulitis(more info here: http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/tc/diverticulitis-topic-overview).
I waited too long to see a doctor about it, and ended up rushing to the emergency room with unbelievable pain at 3am. I was told if I had waited much longer, it could have killed me. I was very lucky I did not need surgery. I was treated by large amounts of antibiotics and morphine.
When I followed up with my GP a day later, he said if I had come to him when it first started, he could have simply treated me with prescriptions and I would not have needed to go to the ER (and pay $6000 for the privilege).
I am not a doctor or anything, perhaps if there is one watching this forum he or she could offer better advice.
However, given my personal experience, I would go to the doctor immediately. I mean IMMEDIATELY.
I realize the question is an old one...but I just came across this while searching for something else. I just thought I'd put this out there...in case someone else has the same symptoms...
This may not be stomach/bowel related at all. I had the same symptoms myself...now three seperate times...and each time it was kidney stones. I won't get into my story but if I were you I would consider this.
