New at this, and new at running. well, about 5 months ago i started running. Started small and worked my way up to 5-7 mile runs. Along the way my ribs started hurting (mainly right ribcage front lower) and seems to radiate down into my stomach and feels bloated on the right side. Related, i also seemed to have strained my lower back, which I am seeing a chiropractor for currently which seems to be helping. My questions are:
Can the sacrum back issues I am having be related to my rib pain?
Is the rib pain normal to still have after almost 6 months? It appears to be worse after each run, and take a couple days to subside to normal.
Thanks for any help anyone can suggest in stretches or ideas of how to handle the pain.
