creatine and stomach cramps

 Anyone else get these? Started on creatine about 3 days ago and today started to experience a bit of discomfort in my stomach. I've read before that this can be because of creatine. Does anyone know how to stop this happening? I really want to keep using it but it might start being a bit too uncomfortable.

    I'm already drinking a hell of alot of water! Today isn't a training day though so haven't drank as much which may be why. Is that all it is then, not enough water? I was starting to think there was something wrong with me

    No not loaded it, I've heard there's no point.  Just been doing 5g a day so far for a few days. I'll up the water intake then. Only problem is I already struggle to wander more than 20ft away from a toilet!
