In brief: Belly Blues

This could be any number of different possibilities.
Common complaints in runners are due to phrenic nerve irritation and diaphragmatic spasm (runner's stitch) which result in discomfort in this area or on the right side. The left side may also be affected from recent splenic injury from a fall, gastric spasm due to ulcerative disease, etc. If the problem is persistent get an examination soon.
