Hello friend, usually you can have after a stomach bug or a virus some cramping or over activity with the intestinal muscle wall that causes a strange beating or cramping described. It is not serious, it is common, and it is nothing to be concerned about. If you are not having bloating, diarrhea, excessive gas, or severe pain, I do not think that you need to consult your physician.

Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have more concerns.
