Exercise and Fitness
For the past two weeks I have been having stomach pain and nausea while running. It doesn`t feel like a side stich, but like I have worked my abs really hard when I haven`t even done any situps or ab work. My friend, who is also a runner, said she had the same problem last year and saw an article about stomach pain/digestive problems in distance runner, but could not remember the specifics. Could this study pertain to me? Thanks.
Stomach pain while running may occur for several reasons. Since this condition has been happening quite frequently, I suggest you discuss this matter with your personal physician.
