Sneezing with pain in back

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing with pain in back


Avatar n tn Every time I turn my head to sneeze I'm met with an excruciating pain in the very back of my head and down my neck. If I turn my head left the pain is more to the right of my head, and if I turn my head right it's more to the left. It doesn't happen when I cough, only when I sneeze. I know it's probably nothing, but it hurts so bad! Any ideas?
2083688 tn?1334605261 Could be, due to something called the Valsalva maneuver, better known as a way of relieving pain in the ears caused by a rapid change in elevation. While pinching your nostrils shut, you blow into your nose hard. This opens the Eustachian tubes connecting your inner ear with your throat and equalizes the pressure on either side of your eardrums.
Avatar f tn I became sick with a simple chest cold last week and for the first time in my life, the constant coughing and sneezing is killing my back. I'm shocked at the pain its producing. My back now feels inflammed and it hurts to walk normal. I'm just riding my cold out to see if my back pains in my fusion area goes away. Anyone else experience back pain when coughing or sneezing?
Avatar n tn Lately, whenever I sneeze, I get severe upper back pain in the center of my back. It feels equivelent to having a sharp object impaled into my back and hitting my chest and almost my lungs. The pains exists for about 4-6 seconds, then fades away slowly, but this is a recurring event. Is there any way to fix this, or is this a sign of a bigger health issue?
Avatar m tn I do have a broken vertebra in the lower L5 region an upper-pars something or other that causes a lot of pain in my legs and back, but that's where the pain from sneezing goes away. Just wondering if this is something serious or not sense nobody I know has ever had any pain like thins at all.
Avatar f tn Hi, In general dull pelvic and lower back pain comes and goes. However, when I sneeze and cough the pain is excruciating, sometimes in the right side of the pelvis and other times in the left. I went to the doctor last time I had a phase of constant dull pain and he gave me an antibiotic which did not work. I'm 19 and have irregular periods.
682891 tn?1226696230 I have had severe allergies this season and have had a lot of sneeze attacks. I have had pain along the back of my neck, as well as equal pain in both shoulders that is also all a crossed my entire chest. I have played football and lifted weights. I feel as if my pain is from my muscles being tensed up so quick and hard time after time from sneezing. Today has been the worst of my sneezing in a long time.
Avatar m tn I too have the same problem i just sneezed a bit ago and the pain started on in my back by my shoulder blade, moved down my right arm into my bicep just above the elbow, then got to my wrist where the pain was excruciating.
Avatar f tn but it comes back. I feel like there might also be a lump in there too, but can't really tell. The pain is mostly at the base and to the right of my neck. It is not raw or anything like my throat is's pain in the actual neck/tissue/cartilage or something. Has anyone ever had pain like this after sneezing. I am going to have to go to the dr because it is not going away. I read somewhere that I could have a tear or something and it could be fatal. That sort of freaked me out....

Avatar f tn i was just wondering if its normal to get pains low in your stomach when sneezing. i was sharp, right in the middle, and lasted about 10 seconds then was gone. I have also been getting some random pains one either side that come and go throughout the day. Do i need to worry about any of this or is it just normal growing pains?

Avatar n tn hi, im not sure if im in the right place, but my 13 year old brother is complaining about a severe shooting pain in his back. He is in constant pain. It started about 2 weeks ago, we thought it was getting better but it got worse again. When he breathes in he says his lungs and ribs really hurt. However, 3 weeks ago he hurt his leg and it became infected, he was on antibiotics, could it be linked? He plays a lot of rugby, and other sports.
Avatar n tn Hi, the type of pain described by you is more consistent with a mechanical back pain, where in with movements like changes in posture, coughing and sneezing the pain is aggravated. Cough and sneezing cause the muscles to contract as a protective mechanism around the injured part and hence the pain. This is more common with small fractures or a herniated disc. Sometimes the pleura, the lining of the chest cavity and lungs can get inflamed causing pain with coughing.
Avatar m tn "a week ago (after digging holes for work) i woke up with dull pain and stiffness in my upper back between right shoulder blade and spine, i rested it for about three days and it felt better despite slight stiffness, and last night i felt 100% and used a row boat in a strong current river, i woke up this morning and i could barely move due to the pain stiff neck and every couple of minutes a sharp pain radiates from the origional spot through to my chest .
Avatar m tn I had back pain for some time. I just got up from the bed and i had the pain. It was left upper back. So, i did a X-ray but doctor did not find anything. Then i was refresed to a chiropractic. I went 6/7 times there and everything was fine. After two months ( last week) again i was feeling some kind of pain in same place. This time i went to a MD and he ordered for a MRI. He called me today and said i have a small disk dispalcement between 6th and 7th vertebrae.
Avatar n tn i have had pain in the right side of chest,just under breast area around to mid back when ever i cough,sneeze or breathe in and out. i have had an xray and this was normal yet still the pain persists. I have not had any incident of straining or moving anything that would indicate a pulled muscle, I do plan on returning to the doctor but i am wondering what the next step would be in testing and if any suggestions of what could be causing this pain.
Avatar f tn Yah there's nothing I can do about it lol I get bad hayfever in mornings and so end up sneezing really hard. I'm hoping it gets better later on.
Avatar m tn Prescribed Clindamycin for a whole month. His only symptoms after a day or two back on was increased sneezing (or reverse sneezing and some snorting) He was doing incredibly well after 1/1/2 weeks on antibiotic again, but we started having problems getting it into him. Called the vet on Friday Aug 18 and her assistant suggested holding the antibiotic over the weekend. Called on Monday and couldn't talk to vet until Tuesday afternoon. She suggested giving antibiotic only every other day.
Avatar f tn This could be due to exertion headache, which presents with head pain during or following physical or passive exertion, including sneezing, coughing, and even bowel movement. This is usually associated with migraine or cluster headaches. However, you need to have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper diagnosis and to rule out organic diseases like aneurysms or blood vessel malformation. Take care and do keep us posted.
1155261 tn?1266690117 ) :). I'm not annoyed with it anymore, and I think 25 was about the most I ever did in a row - usually it's about 5 or 6. I was so excited when I sneezed once yesterday - but that was definitely not the norm for the day :). I'm glad to know it will pass :). I'm hesitant to take any type of pain killers for my headache for two reasons. The first is that I don't really want any other pills in my system, even though it's just paracetamol.
Avatar f tn I was involved in 2 minor rear end collisions, one in April of 2008 and another about 3 weeks ago. I have experienced no pain from the recent collision. On October 12, 2010 I noticed that anytime I sneeze or cough I feel an acute stabbing pain starting in my neck where it meets my shoulder blades and my spine directly between my shoulder blades. The pain will then travel through my abdomen over my entire body mostly through my joints.
Avatar n tn Just after visiting the doctor I spent 6 weeks in Mexico and was relatively free from misery. I'm now back in Toronto for a few weeks and the sneezing seems to be returning . The sneezing I can live with---it's 10 hours a day with a running nose that's a killer. I'm starting a nasal spray called Omnaris and hoping it helps. It's truly a debilitating condition and I commiserate with the others who've written.
Avatar m tn But my question is has anyone ever had Sneezing and coughing along with chest and stomach pain. Every time I cough my chest hurts all the way down to my belly button.
Avatar m tn The type of pain described by you is more consistent with a mechanical back pain, where in with movements like changes in posture or breathing, coughing and sneezing the pain is aggravated. Cough and sneezing cause the muscles to contract as a protective mechanism around the injured part and hence the pain. This is more common with small fractures or a herniated disc. So, I would advise you to consult your doctor at the earliest to rule out a fracture. A plain x ray may show up a fracture.
Avatar m tn I was close to going to the hospital after my back muscle between my shoulder blade and spine SPASMED and felt like hot knives shoved in my back ribs and breast.. Since then every time I sneeze I have the same issue and fills like HELL. My GP laughed at me and couldn’t understand what I was going through told me to take pain relief and rest.. I have not since seen my Neuro or Orthopedic Specialist but they are coming up CAN'T WAIT.
