I would see a doctor if I were you. In the mean time, all one can say is check the basics: Do you drink enough? Do you eat properly? Do you rest enough?

Abdominal cramps while running are very common. Likewise, excessive production of saliva while running is also fairly common (and benign). It is a result of activation of the autonomic nervous system associated with exercise.
