Sorry, just complaining...

I've been healing from a back injury and just when it has started to get better... allergy season arrives. I've been sneezing my head off and my usual allergy meds don't seem to be working. I've been sneezing so hard that my back is all messed up again! When I feel one coming on I tense up because I know it's going to hurt and that makes it worse. I'm scared to sneeze!!

:(

oh lord do i!
I had a very severe case of bronchitis, and from my constant hard coughing (coughing so hard I could have choked myself! ugh!) I tore muscles from my shoulders down to my hips, my ribs were bruised as well- or fractured? Something. Anyhow, it was nasty.

My advice is cold packs/hot baths, anti-inflamitories, and red wine.

Take care of yourself!

Oh man, YES, and I hate it!

I have asthma that is really bad with colds/viruses so when I get one, I cough so hard i pull muscles frequently and it hurts!!! I've been told that heat/cold packs are the best help, also tylenol or advil for the pain.

I sneezed once when I was bending over and it really hurt my back. I was sore for about a day. Apparently you can really hurt yourself doing that.

I've always been afraid to sneeze while peeing, like my bladder will fall out and into the toilet.

I feel you! I tend to do that a lot lately, ever since I hurt my back in winter. And I hurt it just in time for flu season, which sucked.

I never have personally, but my aunt did a few weeks ago. She finally went to the doctor, because she just couldn't stand it anymore, and her doctor was like "Um, rest to get over your cold, but don't rest too long, because it'll bother your back."

Like...uh, thanks?

A friend of mine had a horrible bout of coughing, and broke a bone.

She is a smoker and has ahsma.

Don't tense up! Tensing up makes things worse!

...if that helps at all, haha.

My sister sneezed so hard that she actually did something to one of the discs in her spine - I can't remember the medical term for it, but she basically squished all the goop that is supposed to be in a disc, out one side. She was in pain for months and it took her probably about 18 months or so before she could really dance again.

Yep, and intercostals, too. Ouch. I feel for you. Have you tried the acupressure point on your philtrum? When I'm interpreting it comes in very handy. Place your index finger, palm side to your face, vertically down your philtrum (the dent between the septum and the middle of the cupid's bow of your top lip) and press evenly and firmly until the impulse to sneeze has passed. You feel the pressure on your upper front gum, near the lip string. It usually only takes a second or two, or it wouldn't be possible to do in between signing.

Not personally, but my Mum has broken a rib from sneezing. Twice.
Yeah, about the only thing I did was just about wet myself...

No...But I've caused many muscle spasms from coughing during my time being sick this year.

Wow! Broken ribs? Pulled discs? TORN muscles? Who knew sneezing could be so violent?

Thanks for the acupressure point, tassiemum. I will try that.

Oh yeah. I get bronchitis just about every winter, and last winter it developed into pneumonia as well, the coughing got so bad that I bruised my ribs and had constant muscle pain in my upper abdomen area.

My dad sneezed so hard he set off a burglar alarm once.

Kind of irrelevant, but it was very amusing at the time :)

Yes..amongst other things. I had really really bad bronchitis for about 2-3 weeks this past winter and had a really really violent cough (so hard it could knock you off of a chair)..during the course of that I cracked a couple ribs, bruised my sternum, had 30-40 asthma attacks, pulled a muscle in my mid-back, and pulled muscles in my upper abdomen..it was sooo not fun.

I have sneezed so hard that I have cracked my back. I have also sneezed so hard I've wet my pants too. But no, I have never pulled anything before.

Meg, I couldn't believe it either. She broke one of her vertebrae. She had to take extra calcium, and her chest was wrapped.


It was unbelievable. I went down there, and the usual smoking haze was in the apartment, and here she is, with this kind of velcro, thing around her trunk.


Of course, she didn't stop smoking, or stop coughing.. but now she is taking calcium and Citrical, which is good.

Oh oh! I have!...I did it by of all things LAUGHING!

My friend and I (I was visiting her in Florida) were surfing you-tube laughing hysterically at Jeff Dunham....when I started to laugh SO hard I pulled a muscle in my back!

It took MONTHS for that pain to completely go away.
