Eating raw rice is not good for you. It can be an indication of vitamin or iron deficiency .
There is a possibility that you may ingest bacteria from unwashed rice. Also, in the stomach the grains of rice will swell as they absorb water. This may cause stomach pains. You should try to stop the habit if possible. Your doctor may be able to help you if you need therapy to help you stop. Also your doctor may want to check you for anaemia.
