Hi! So I have this problem that when I run everything is ok nothing hurts. But suddenly this awful pain comes into my stomach and it doesn't stop before I stop even though i want to run. I usually eat before i go running and strech so why does this pain come?? What should i do from not getting the pain again?

Try avoid eating up to an hour or two before you run... Eat something small with sugar about 10 minutes before if you need the energy.
What happens is when you run your body shifts most of the blood to the muscles working, and because of that there is a lack of blood in your stomach. Especially when you're digesting, the stomach doesn't know what to do so it sends pain signals. As it turns out, eventually your stomach gets more efficient and the pains stop.
Just keep running and it will get better! Try keeping your stomach empty.
