Abdominal Pain 2

Abdominal Pain 2

Question:

Hi there, I run 3 miles twice a week and have done for several years. Every time I run I get severe stomach cramps about 1 mile into the run and have to stop and walk. it is getting worse all the time and I am finding it extremely frustrating. Regards Joan Answer:

Dear Joan,

There are many possible causes of abdominal pain/cramps. Over consumption of food or fluids less than a couple of hours before a run can cause stomach cramps. If your symptoms persist I would recommend that you consult your family doctor.

Kind regards
