I started running about a week ago. I had tried to get into a routine before but I always got cramps when I was running so I gave up. Now I am just braving the pain and keep running until I can't stand the stomach cramp. Any suggestions to help this? I know I can keep running if I could get rid of this cramp.

i get the same thing, talked to a doctor, it's not the stomach, but it feels like right under the rib cage, supposedly it's muscle skeletal related...not sure, they say just keep on conditioning the body, it should get better, it doesn't happen to me all the time tho, if i run in the morning or so, it's a lot better,

Dear sir,
I just got done reading some information about stomach cramps from running. Here are a few tips I learned: drink plenty of water before and after you run ; while running, mantain an upright posture, with your abdominals tucked in slightly, and concentrate on breathing evenly and paced-like. you must start this from the beginning of the run for it to be effective ; do not run within an hour and a half of eating.; These tips have helped other people well. I hope they help you, also.

I have incured a similar problem when i began running part of it has to do with your muscular endurance - with time the cramps go away - try to slow to a walk till the pain goes away a bit then begin running again to strengthen the muscle - you may also want to increase your intake of magnesium which helps to reduce muscle cramping

I have this problem all the time, and it's not just new runners that have this problem. I run all the time, and experience severe cramps after about 1.5 miles. For me, it's not dehydration, as I drink more than 2 liters of water during the day before I begin the workout in the evening. I do not eat beforehand, and I keep my breathing very even. I still, almost every time, am stopped by cramps. Does anyone have any other ideas?

like everyone here, i seem to have the same problem. i think its from drinking water and running fast. it seems that that water is shaking up and down in the stomach and i get that pain, but when i walk it stops.tho i could be wrong.

lack of potassium is also a large factor, eat a bananna.

Most runners breath out as they plant their right foot,this cause an impact on your organs attathed to your diaphram. Exhale as you plant your left foot. You have to concentrate on this but the cramps will ease up. Alternate between the two as you run.

I have the same exact problem when I run. I learned in a physiology class that the reason for this cramping and burning in theses muscles is caused from a build-up of lactic acid. This happens when your muscles are not getting enough oxygen and your anaerobic system kicks in. There are a lot of articles on the internet about the build-up of lactic acid and what you can do to prevent it.

I seem to have the same problem with cramps and running. I am usually fine during the run, but immediately after I stop running I get very severe stomach cramps. They are quite problematic for about 20minutes after I run. I leave for Police academy in a week and a half so if you guys have any suggestions on how to get rid of this problem I would be very greatful. I'm not gonna have 20 min to get over cramps at the academy.
