I have a pain in my side when i run. Have since i was a kid. Why?

Muscle spasm: A stitch or muscle spasm is the most common reason. Do you run often? Is it every time you run? Where on your side? How long does it last? An infrequent runner may have little stitches when they run as they are nor conditioned for that. A frequent runner is different. Consider a chiropractic evaluation. You may have a misalignment that contributes. May want to tell your doctor as well. ...Read more

I've had constipation since I was little. I go once a week or twice. Sometimes after a large bm I have extreme pain in my side (usually right) help?

What have you tried?: I usually start people off with natural treatments - prunes, warm water, increased fiber in diet, exercise, and if still no relief, add stool softener like docusate/colace. Taking a good probiotic (available at your pharmacy) may also help. If you are having "extreme pain" see your MD for a thorough history and exam. Chronic constipation is usually not serious, but it shouldn't hurt that much! ...Read more
