Is abdominal cramping a part of GERD?

I have bad abdominal cramps just below the sternum that can sometimes last for hours. Sometimes this is triggered early in the morning by coffee. Can these types of cramps be associated with GERD?

I actually used to refer to my GERD as "coffee stomach" Coffee is a huge trigger for GERD. Before it got really bad I would just eat toast to make it go away.
