Why do I get intense pain in my abs after running for like 5 minutes?

I have started to run last week but I still get cramps every time. I tried mixing salt into my water so I absorb more water before running but that doesn't seem to help. Sometimes I get cramps in my left side, sometimes in my right side. I have always had this since I was a child if I would run too fast or for too long.
