Stomach pains after games?

Hey,

Just wondering if anyone has any stomach pains after games...

I've started having them for the past year... sometimes it's not so bad but sometimes i get to the point where i get cold sweat.

I've went to the see the doctors once to check it out... he said it was due to muscle spasms and i should stretch before and after games. I've been doing that a lot and it doesn't seem to help.

Just wondering if anyone has had anything simular to this.

I'm probably going to go get it checked out again.

I also think that the longer i play for (example drop-ins: you get a lot of ice time compared to regular beer league games) the more painful it is.

Thanks

are you drinking a lot of water (or anything else) before you play? That would cause you to cramp up.

Exactly. Drink a full Gatoraide or G2 shortly before your game to make sure your electrolytes are in balance and drink plenty of water or G2 on the bench. If you are skating/working really hard during the game drink a G3 in locker room after your game.

I usually drink quite a bit of water during the game and usually that's it... i don't really drink before or after the game.

I guess i'll give gatorade a shot before and during a game and see what happens... Hope for the best i guess hah..

Everyone is different. E.g. I had a similar problem caused by drinking Gatorade during games...

This probably has to do with your diet more than anything else.

What is your age? Weight/Height?

If you consume a lot of acidic drinks(say you drink a lot of juice, red bull or such) it could be affecting you. Soda-pop is also very bad for you(high in bad sugars and very acidic). Time for you to give those up and stick to water as your primary beverage of choice.

The return is tenfold. You'll feel healthier, save money, and have less dental issues(cavities and such).

If you eat too much junk food, or fried foods it could also be affecting you.

A guy I work with is about 6'2 used to be around 260, and he used to constantly have problems with acid reflux. His doctor told him to lose weight and he lost about 60-70 pounds, his problem has since vanished.

You might want to consider the same thing. I've done some research and reading around and you'd be surprised at how much your diet effects your daily activities.

I'm not horribly overweight or even all that much, I am in my healthy range(6'7 about 215). But recently, I have cut down on eating out, and eat junk food. I've transitioned to more natural foods(fruits and veggies). A more high fiber diet. I try to eat organic as much as possible. You'd be surprised at how much better you feel.

The two things I would try doing are core stretches and drinking Gatorade AFTER you play (right away).

I had sharp, stabbing stomach pains playing badminton in college that went away with stretches and hydration. That was when I was out of shape before I started playing hockey, so my core was pretty weak.

I'm 24, 5'7" and 130lbs... I actually drink lots of water and usually eat pretty healthy... I'm also really active and I usually go to the gym 2-3 times a week.

I also don't eat a lot of junk food...

I think i'll definitely give the gatorade thing a try and hope it works out for me.

I know many are sayin gsave the gatoraide for after. I would try G2 beforehand. It is the reduced sugar gatoraide that will ensur your electrolytes stay in balance. Water only, while keeping you hydrated, can throw your electrolytes out of whack.

As a recovery, don't do original Gatoraide after the game. it is all sugar. Drink their new product, G3. It has the electrolytes like G2 but also has protein to aide in muscle recovery.

What are you eating/drinking pre game?

Maybe you're simply just eating too soon before the game.

Less time at the local bar, more time at the chin-up bar

Staying hydrated helps, but don't just chug a few liters / half-gallon of water 30 minutes before the game and think you'll feel fine. Spread your water intake across the entire day.

I do this, and during a game all I drink is a squirt of water in my mouth twice a period. Guys who slam back a bottle of water right before a game or between periods are just asking for problems.

Thanks for the Advice everyone!
