Do you suffer from Cramps or Stitches, especially when exercising?
Just about everyone has experienced either a cramp or a stitch at some time. These complaints can range from mildly uncomfortable to severely debilitating and are a great source of frustration to everyone from recreational exercisers to serious athletes.  Unfortunately, scientists know very little about the two conditions and how to avoid them.  Consequently, there is a lot of folklore surrounding the topic, making it difficult to know exactly how to deal with these problems.
The Australian Institute of Sport have written a great article explaining what a stitch or cramp is and what you can do to prevent them.
