Pain lower left side of tummy when I run
This last couple of months I have been getting this pain in my lower life side when I run, it hurts so bad that sometimes I have to revert to walking. I'm a bit scared to go to see the doctor and was wandering if anyone else has had this pain. It is not like a cramp it just feels like a long stab pain and it's too low to be a stitch. I had been doing a lot of leg raises quite a while before this and wander if this could be the cause.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thank you

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include dehydration, inadequate warm up, fatigue, electrolyte imbalance, GI/ GU infections/ inflammations etc. I would suggest taking water intermittently during the workouts and not running on an empty stomach. Try taking light meals an hour or so before running. Perform warm up exercises and take breaks during the workout. If these measures do not seem to help, you may consider getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
