    Hi Guys,

    I started playing badminton again after a couple of sedentary years. Initially, I had trouble getting my breathing under control. With a lot of cycling exercise, that problem now seems solved.

    Strangely, after a some intense singles rallies or a tough carido workout, I get abdominal (stomach) pain. It feels like there is black hole in my stomach creating a vacuum. I assume this isn't an injury since I competely recover after a few minutes of rest.

    Any ideas what could be causing this? more importantly, what I could do to prevent this?

    "Duh! become more fit" could be a perfectly reasonable answer. But I wanted to check if anyone else has experienced this.

    Cheers,
    Aravind

    One men I play with has similar symptoms after playing intense singles with me. He hasn't found a cure yet.

    Is it a stich type pain, normally caused by eating before exercise?

    OK try to leave two hours from eating too exercising if you can, an hour at minimum.
