Welcome to Healthcaremagic
It could be acid peptic disease with periodicity or an IBS. It is immaterial as both are benign conditions. What is important to know is whether you are losing weight or appetite or have any black tarry stools. You should get 3 consecutive samples of stool occult blood, CBC and ESR. IBS is also known to have periodicity as may not be throughout the year. If stool occult blood is positive, you may require upper GI and lower GI endoscopy.
Take care
