Sneezing after head injury

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing after head injury


Avatar m tn Though your pain sounds like some sort of nerve compression pain but it is quite unlikely to appear after so long of a past head injury, but a neurologist can only give you a precise opinion here after examining you & seeing investigation reports. Another possibility could be a sinusitis pain that originates after mucus block and infection of sinuses. That can be resolved after draining mucus from blocked sinuses.
682891 tn?1226696230 I was fine yesterday and sneezin due to a summer cold but today this sharp pain ripped thru the top part of my spine over my shoulder blades and arms and elbows. Fingers felt limp. after 15-20secs im ok again. Ive tried to stop sneezing before i do but dont seem to work. Will make an appointment with my GP and get him to check me out.
765439 tn?1292964014 Did you continue to work out after the injury? If so this will delay the healing. If this is what occurred, surgery I don't think would benefit.. I don't think you had a muscle ligament rupture as that would be more obvious with marked loss of strength and the muscle involved will "bunch up". (If you see an achilles or bicep tendon rupture you will know what I am talking about). Surgery is required to fix those.
Avatar f tn If the force compromises the skull, which we know to be very strong and hard, this will cause symptoms. If you have a history of head injury, I recommend that you have this evaluated further. A complete physical and neurological examination will help. Otherwise, there is nothing to be worried about. Take care and regards.

There is a major risk of eye injury in racquet sports and your husband MUST wear safety sports glasses for his tennis game. (I have seen eyes blinded from tennis injuries). Quite some time back a survey was taken of retina surgeons about letting their patients return to full activities after retinal detachment surgery (much more extensive than what your husband had).
Avatar n tn Starting today it has also started to feel like it is on fire at times and then goes to a dull ache. Just like a few of you, I had a head injury when I was younger that required a trip to the hospital complete with x-rays. I did have a concussion, but can not recall exactly where. About three years ago I also started to get menstrual headaches and just recently started to use Treximet to control the headaches. I am now wondering if the menstrual headaches are connected.
Avatar n tn It all started with pressure in my forehead and developed into slight pain that went away when I laid down. After a year, I developed mental fog and pain that lasts all day long now. My head is tender and touching my head affects the pain.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old male and it seems when I am hungry, I get a noise in my head that sounds like a crackling or sand falling in an hourglass. It only occurs when I know I need to eat. It happens for 3 to 4 seconds at a time, once every 10 seconds or so. I have no pain, but I do feel an uneasiness until I eat something. My wife says she gets it too and she can hear when my head does it. Any ideas would be welcome.
Avatar n tn The pain was so sharp, it felt like someone stabbed me in the top of my head with some sharp thin tool and the pain went straight down the top of my head thru my ear and into my teeth. I was on the floor holding my head for my deal life. After the pain left, 2 minutes later, the pain in my head isnt so bad but it scared me. Anyone have any information on what this could be? Please let me know!
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar f tn i had the same shooting pain in one spot on the back of my head 1 in above the neck and 1 inch away from the ear went to er after 4 days explained the constant pain and how it came in intervals founf out that it could be shingles with out the rash. most people get the pain first for a while then a rash.

Avatar n tn I will get back to you as soon as I can. It's been a difficult weekend. I think you have a form of positional vertigo called BPPV - Benign Paroxysmal Vertigo that probably flares becasue of inner ear congestion combined with sneezing (when slightly whiplashes the head). I'm going to find a post that I wrote for someone else. The attacks of BBPV are not always horrible swirlings, but they certainly can be unsettling and cause falls. What is BPPV? (ALERT! Epic Disourse ahead!
Avatar n tn To counteract this problem, I must quickly bend over at the waist to get the blood flowing to my head, and then after several seconds, I can slowly raise my head and feel normal. This happens to me several times throughout the day, every day. It does seem to be more prominent if I've allowed myself to go too long without eating. I also have an underlying condition called Mastocytosis, which can cause low BP or sudden drops in BP, along w/ anaphylaxis.
Avatar n tn Like a few posters above, I get the sore throat first, which turns into a head cold, blocked sinus, which always seems to progress to my chest after a couple of days. I've got the chesty cough even as I type. It started again a day or so after my last heavy(ish) workout with weights ... sore throat, sinus blocked, aches (yes, I expect aches after doing weights, but these are different 'coldy' aches) etc etc until I had to have a couple of days in bed and a day off work.
Avatar n tn In March 2007 I had an Inguinal Hernia repair operation on both sides after I had experienced bad groin pain for about six weeks. About three weeks after the surgery, I developed testicular pain in both left and right testicle with the left one swelling up dramatically. After going for a scan it was observed that I had a hydrocele on my left side. Six weeks after My original operation, I was hospitalised after I developed severe pain on the right side of my groin.
Avatar n tn In this accident I did get whiplash and had 2 of my upper verterbrae pinched which I had to get therapy for about 6 months by the chiropractor. So, is it possible that a neck/head injury could lead to sinus problems?

Avatar n tn I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of.
Avatar f tn you have this pain at any other time?...Laughing , sneezing...coughing etc? Have you had an injury to your neck? MVA etc? Definitely talk with your Dr.
Avatar m tn This is my first comment in this forum I just signed up so I am new as well. I had an injury 15 years ago and was injured badly 5 years after that. I've been a pill popper this entire time and even had a two year dependency on heroin within that time period. I've never been a big drinker and the only other drug I had this problem with is Xanax, and even though my run with that wasn't as long it wreaked havoc on my body and nervous system.
Avatar n tn Did you consult an attorney with your work injury? My surgery was also the result of a work injury. I have retained an attorney and he told me that the company that I work for would be responsible for all medical bills pertaining to my neck or any area that was effected from my injury for the rest of my life. I know how bad the pain can be, I just hope it will eventually get better. I'm so sorry for your lose and I wish you luck.
Avatar n tn Hi, Amy I am getting ready to start a third ivf transfer, this time I am doing a FET maybe you can answer some of my questions. Did you do birth control and lupron? Did you bleed while on Lupron? I bleed for two weeks I started to bleed (lightly) the day before I started my Lupron shots. Today I went to the RE for an ultrasound and blood work. They said everything was fine and he lowered my lupron from 10 to 5. I now am taking estrace (pill) and I go back on Wed. Is this familiar to you?
Avatar n tn I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!

Take tramadol exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Do not take more than 300 milligrams of tramadol in one day.

Avatar m tn These symptons improve over time and after a week or two(without sex), are back to normal. This last time, after driving in bad traffic (which really stressed me out) to my girlfriend's, I took the meds with indomethacin and decided not to go to sleep right away after sex. After 5 or 6 hours with almost no adverse symptons I went to sleep.
