Comfort nursing?

DD is 4 weeks old and all day today she has been fussy. Which is very unusual for her, normally she only fusses when shes hungry but today shes been nursing her usual amount of time before falling asleep then she sleeps for maybe 10mins and starts back crying again. So I've had her attached to me pretty much all day as the only thing that seems to help is for her to nurse. Her cry after a feeding isn't a hunger cry though it seems to be more of a pain cry but then sometimes she'll be calm and start to close her eyes and then start back crying again as if shes fighting sleep. I've been trying so hard not to give her a paci but I gave in a few times today and it kept her calm long enough to get some things done but then I'd take it back. I'm not sure if theres something wrong with her...like a bellyache or if shes just comfort nursing. My friend suggested a growth spurt but I have no idea. I feel like its gonna be a long night...
