Its Han (13 дней назад)
In my school the hole year group of year 6 had to do 4 laps around the school i came first and then i asked my teacher if i could do another one after i finished my extra lap i saw my friend flat on the ground she was crying i thought she was messing about but she wasnt She was acting like nothing was wrong but something was wrong she told me that she felt like her intestines were rolling around and she had a really bad stitch i hadnt got a stitch in a long time but to be honest i have never expirineced a bad stitch and i can tell my friend was in pain I was super worried about her but now shes fine but when ever we do laps or running i keep an eye on her just in case and if we were doing a race and she got the bad stitch again i would go back and help her. I do like winning races but my friends are more important to me and i want to make sure they are okay.

I found out that expanding and then sucking in your stomach helps a lot!! (because that's basically an internal massage). Treat it like a muscle cramp and it goes away really quick.

I get a pain often on my left or right side. Sometimes both at the same time. I've always called them side stitches but they seem to be higher than where a stitch would be so I'm not sure. They tend to be where my bra strap would be located. I get an intense, sharp pain that locks up my whole side but the pain is primarily in the region I spoke of. I get it even from doing simple things such as sneezing, coughing or laughing. If I stretch it also happens so I don't stretch as often as I should, in fear of the pain. I try deep breathing, it makes it worse. So it being that high up, would it be considered a side stitch? I've literally dealt was these for many many years... any info, help would be amazing. Sidenote.... these are things I've tried.... creams, Gatorade, more water, bananas, deep breathing and self massage. Thanks. Much Love 😁💚

Breathing right while running eliminates this altogether. It seems to be related to oxygen intake and expelling CO2 efficiently. People that run sometimes take rapid shallow breaths which gradually increases the CO2 levels causing cramps. In the Army I learned to use a couple different rhythms depending on if I was running alone or in cadence with the platoon. When running alone, such as for a PT test, I used a 3/2 rhythm. inhaling for 3 steps and exhaling faster for 2. Before I figured out how to do that I ALWAYS got the side stitch. I ran a LOT in the Army and once I figured out how to breathe, I never got the side stitch again. When doing cadence the pattern is a bit more complicated. Actually, the inhale happens more frequently in that case as you tend to inhale a couple times before exhaling to repeat back what the Drill Sergeant is 'singing.' To keep the rhythm, I usually went: 3 step inhale, 1 step partially exhale, 4 step deep inhale, 8 steps exhale while repeating back what the DS said. Doing this one ends up exhaling for 9 steps while breathing in for 7, 4 of which are particularly deep. The key is just finding a good rhythm and breathing in a deep controlled way. This may work for a couple reasons. It may increase O2 in the blood stream, decreasing cramping in general. Or it may be that doing deeper breaths exercises the related side tendons and diaphram such that the muscles involved don't bounce around as much (tense core muscles). So all of the hypothetical causes in this video can be simultaneously correct.

Isn't this just one of the reason why we get side stitches. Few other I heard are; blood pumped into liver very fast causing pain especially if the liver is a little fatty. And the other is if you don't do good warm-up and stretching before cardio then you may get abdominal or back or neck or lateral muscle cramps that feel like side stitches. Or if you stomach-breathe which is aka diaphragmatic then your fast breathing can trigger it. Another one; due to gas or bloating or too much body weight.

I’m going into the military, and I’m scared to run in basic training now cuz this just happened to me recently, and I just ignored it for awhile but then it got so bad that I had to stop, I really hope this doesn’t happen again, does ANYONE actually know how to prevent the pain to even start??

According to my PE teacher, the stitch is your spleen contracting to release extra blood into the circulatory system.

Why aren't you mentioning the serratus anterior and the abdominals? Trigger points are real, and the serratus anterior muscle, which is located on the ribs and aids in breathing, can also cause a "stitch in the side" pain. Also, the abdominal obliques can cause a stitch-like pain in the abs region. You shouldn't overlook trigger points and their pain referrals. Bodywork therapists, including neuromuscular therapists, can help alleviate such pains in one or a few sessions. Our postures of sitting in front of computers, holding tablets and smart phones, playing games on consoles, and reading in bed are usually the culprit. Why go thru so much unnecessary testing and changes in diet when all it is is muscular pain referrals? And, yes, all of this is backed by physicians. http://triggerpoints.net/torso https://www.massagetherapy.com/find/search https://www.amtamassage.org/findamassage/index.html

I once felt pain in my side so I ran faster and it went away. It came back the next day and I did the same. Now it stopped coming since I stopped running, but well... I now know the unhealthiest way to treat a side stitch.

This happens to me really often, if not every time I run... even after a short distance. :( 😤
Olorin Elior (6 месяцев назад)
I think the first option is the most likely, since our bodies are made to run and walk a lot and having organs that bounce around wouldn't help that cause. Also, feeling a pain in your sides because some organs wherever in your body rub together a bit is a bit of a weird explenation.

Finally I know it's real. My father forced me to run and I keep crying that I feel piercing pain but he still made me run and beat me up saying that I am making this up myself.

I got stitches as a child and found all I had to do was inhale-take a deep breath-and they'd "pop" and the pain disappeared.
BG 105 (6 месяцев назад)
The only thing I ask is, how do they go away even if you keep going? I mean I went to Air Time once, it's a trampoline place with doge ball and jumping into fome pits and all that, and I got a stich but it went away after a bit even though I didn't stop

Michael and Brytany Jordan (7 месяцев назад)
To reinforce this hypothesis I will point out that you don't have to stop for the stitch to go away ypu just need to take in more owygen with deeper breaths atleast until your heart catches up.
Michael and Brytany Jordan (7 месяцев назад)
I personally think it has to do with something in your abdomin not getting enough blood flow do to redirection to your fight or flight system. I don't get stitches after being completely warmed up I only get them before I am warmed up and still pushing myself. The body redirects blood to power your muscles before your heart and lungs catch up and something in your abdomin gets HANGRY for oxygen.

Dan Stromberg (7 месяцев назад)
I thought these were "oxygen cramps", and I was told that as your stamina increases, you get them less (never). When I used to run track (now I do treadmill/stairmaster/weights), I got into the habit of inhaling for n count, and exhaling for n+1 count to really empty out your lungs; at around 7<=n<=11, you're getting oxygen pretty efficiently.

How to stop the stitching? Start breathing heavily through your nose and not through your mouth. Works every time for me.

Wow, had no idea this wasnt normal haha. I’ve always had these stitches since I can remember and always thought everyone got them. I was always bad at sport primarily because of this pain, even just walking after some time does this and it doesnt matter how fit and active I am its still just as bad. I just have to take exercise really easily.
