Please help me figure out this strange new pain behind my bellybutton.

It feels like a dull and constant ache, sort of like something is lodged in me right inside or behind my bellybutton. But there's nothing there. No lumps. Sometimes the pain radiates straight down like menstrual cramps. Sometimes it makes me nauseous.
The pain started a little over a week ago. Possibly related factors: it started a few hours after having sex (I'm a woman), and I'd recently started taking 5-HTP again. At first I got paranoid and suspected pregnancy, but then I remembered that I actually had similar long-lasting cramps after having sex about a month ago...these lasted right up until I got even worse cramps, and then my period started.
Anyone experienced something similar? What could this be?
