What is stitch?

Stitch - is simply a sharp pain in one's side. What happens is that when we use muscles that are normally almost inactive, they contract and tighten, squeezing our nerves and causing pain. This acute, internal pain is often experienced by runners, but it soon passes off, and is not serious. There is a hedgerow plant called stitchwort which people once thought could cure stitch.
