What is the cause of running left abdominal pain?

Left abdominal pain in running is a relatively common symptom in sports, more common in medium and long distance running, marathon sports, may be related to gastrointestinal spasm during exercise, such as exercising too early after meals, eating too much, exercising on an empty stomach, etc. The pain in the lower chest, located in the rib-covered area, may be mistaken for left abdominal pain when the breathing rhythm is not paid attention to during exercise, which makes the respiratory muscle spasm. The symptoms can be slowly relieved by doing proper rest after stopping the exercise in general. Running left abdominal pain may be related to its own inflammation or lesions in the lower left abdomen, induced during running, commonly including enteritis, larger cysts in the left ovary, chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, etc.
