I work as a sports trainer for a footy club but this isn’t one I’ve seen a lot. The only time I’ve seen this happen is when there is a torn or strained muscle involved.

If it’s happening immediately after you work out, it could be lack of hydration or you could be eating too much before exercise. Try modifying what you eat/drink before exercise and see what happens. If it comes on after a few hours or even a day, it is delayed onset muscle soreness – caused usually by overtraining! For this one, you can take anti-inflammatories, ice the area for 24 hours (15 minutes on, two hours off) and get someone to massage the area. If you get it massaged and the person massaging can actually feel a knot, it’s a more serious strain or tear and you should avoid training.

Do you feel sick at the same time or is it just soreness? If you’re feeling sick I would go to a doctor as it could be a gastrointestinal issue rather than muscle pain.

I would also recommend easing your running/core workouts while you’re dealing with this. My FI had soreness in his lower abs area on the right side and ignored it and ended up missing an entire season of footy with a torn stomach muscle. He couldn’t even sit up to get out of bed.
