Right where do I start.....
I started running about 6-7 months ago and did my first 10 mile race which was the thanet 10. I did it in 1hr 18 mins and was chuffed and it felt like my running had improved in a very short amount of time.
Direct the day after the race I started getting a quite painful pain in my right side under my rib cage. It was on an off for a short while until a few months ago where it started to get worse.
I have had all the blood tests and an ultrasound and every thing is totally normal.
The doctor now thinks it could be either IBS or a muscle pain.
The problem is now everytime I go running, as soon as I get to around 2-3 miles at around 7.5-8 min miles which is where I feel comfortable the pain starts of low then just gets more and more painful to the point I have to stop. This pain dies down after another mile or so and leaves me with a very dull ache which then gets worse and worse and then goes around my back slightly.
I tend to find that my ability to run with this pain is impossible and I just get slower and slower.
The doctor doesn't know where to go next and has left me feeling very frustated as I enjoy running and now dread running before I go out so probably stress myself prior.
Last week at the club run which wasn't particularly fast I threw up.
Any advice anyone can give or if people have similar symptons which have found ways to improve things would be really appreciated.
