constant cramping with 2yo Paragard

I have had my IUD (Paragard)

I have had my IUD (Paragard) in for 2yrs. I have been a little more crampy on and off the whole time I have had it in place. But for the last couple weeks it is constant. If started a while before my last period (which was 8days late) and lasted throughout it and is still going on several days after it has ended. I feel bloated and very achy in my uterus region.

I am wondering if this is normal or if it is something that need looked into.

Thanks so much.
