I remember when Mac had his intestinal obstruction -- the first day that I noticed something was wrong, his tail was tucked, he acted "scared", and his back was roached. When he was laying on my lap as I was trying to reassure him, he kept shivering. He didn't cry or make any noise until just before I put him in the car to go to the vet the very next day.
He had other signs of an obstruction as well: his belly was tender, he didn't poop for two days, and he was eating and vomiting it right back up.
I'm not saying Rocky has an obstruction, but he's acting "off" for a reason. Check to see if he's pooped/pee'd, is eating/drinking okay, hasn't vomited, and that he doesn't feel hot to the touch (could be a sign that he has a temperature). If you're adventurous, you could always take his temp.
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.
