It sounds like false labor , I had the same thing at 35 weeks , went to the ER and got sent home .

Have you been drinking enough water? Dehydration can cause contractions

Yes dehydration causes cramps and contractions , and I was dehydrated. So you can maybe take some pain meds and drink lots of water . How many weeks are you ?
