What causes stomach cramps and bloating?

Hi, last night i had stomach cramps, bloated but couldn't pass air and i was very cold. The pain moved from my upper stomach to the lower abdomen. It took roughly 55 minutes and i couldn't even move my body.I fell asleep in that pain and woke fine with lots of passing air. What could be the cause of that?
