Sometimes a side stitch can be caused due to the pattern of your breathing during the run. A remedy is often based on the individual. I like to take a nice long inhale and slowly exhale to try and regulate my breathing pattern. I know other runners that force themselves to run with their hands over their head in order to open the rib cage/diaphragm.
Just my thoughts, not very scientific but lots of experience with running! :)

Whenever I go jogging I usually have an issue with a pain in my side, I googled it and came up with an answer...it's a side stitch. A few websites recommend keeping hydrated to get rid of the pain, but no matter how much water I drink I still get the pain.
Do any of you deal with this issue? How do you deal with it?
