What it Means when you Get a Side Stitch while Running

So you’re on your favorite running trail and jamming out to the tunes surging through your headphones. You’re feeling great and just getting in your groove when BAM! a side stitch hits you hard. Apart from the throbbing pain in your side, side stitches are super annoying because they take your mind off your run and focus it instead on the pain.

A side stitch or cramp is a muscle spasm of the diaphragm, which is instrumental in breathing and can get fatigued. The cramp affects the diaphragm muscle, the supporting ligaments, tendons and surrounding connective tissue.
