Pain in lower abdomon after hard work outs?
 
After some hard work out sessions i get almost a stomach ache in my lower abdomen. If you have more specific questions about it i can answer those, but does anyone know what this is, is it something i ate or lack of food, it happens after i finish my work out but only if they were hard work outs...any idea what this is and what to do about it?

Cramping?

If it's lower right quandrant might be an aggravated appendix in which case I'd be careful...

No its not cramping, its more like i need to go number 2 or pass gas...I trying to think of some other ways to describe it.

I get that too from time to time. More often with workouts that involve rowing or situps. I find get it more often if I am working out on an empty or a too-full stomach. What makes me feel better faster is to walk or even lightly jog and take deep relaxing breaths. Lying down or "resting" just prolongs the discomfort, water usually doesn't help. Only once have I ever had it progress to puking though. To me it is a very similar feeling as the kind of cramping that men don't get, if you catch my drift, a cross between being constipated and getting punched in the gut.


Here's an informative (WFS) article:
