Timed out waiting for response

We are executing the below listed API call aprox every 15-20 min. normally without any problems.
However recently we have started to receive a time out message more often.

Call (GET) https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/zones/ourID/dns_records
Parameter per_page=100Parameter page=1error fetching DNSRecords Timed out waiting for response

Any ideas to why?
