My 15 year old son started having problems with right side stitches this year while running or even walking at a brisk pace. He is a goalie on a select soccer team; and was picked up by his school varsity team this year. He is able to play in the goal but when it comes to practices and running laps for conditioning he continually gets a right side ache. His coach is threatening that if he can't parcipate in practices he can't play. We have gone on line and read everything we can about side stitches and tried everything but nothing has worked. We have even been to the doctor several times, had chest xrays (to determine if there was a bone injury) but nothing. We know about drinking water and how much and when ... we are stumped. Anyone know what really works?
