This couple of days I had a bad cold and when I cough and sneeze it was very painful . Am I going to have this for the rest of my life
In God I Trust
I hope not. If you think about it. Every time you cough or sneeze, some of your back as well as your stomach muscels tense up. When that happens the musces push on the nerves.
I am not aware of your injury, but if it is a nerve problem. What I said above maked perfect sense to this old redneck.

Coughing and sneezing just about kill me sometimes
Hey Manley, I hope you feel better soon! I too have had a deep down chest cold with a terribly gross, and gagging cough! I have not felt bad, except for the cough is exhausting....and doing extra loads of laundry, cause I'm apparently an old lady!
I imagine you have aggrivated a muscle and caused a spasm, or a pull...which could lead to nerve pain you describe. Have you tried moist heat?

This is a good question to ask your DR,!!!!!! As we age things change and muscles etc weaken, coughing and sneezing can cause problems even if you don.t have a injury...
Hope you are all feeling better soon.........
or depends lol
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......
OMG...WOW..... Is that what I have to look forward too as I get older....LOL.. besides the depends I'm close to that now...
I feel good because This is the day that the lord has made and I will rejoice in it!
I know my husband has sneezed so hard that he blows his nose right out!!! One day he sneezed so hard there was blood everywhere. I know I have heard it is from dry air etc. It scared the living you know what out of him after that. But I think he just pushes so hard with his sneezes and broke some blood vessels or something. Now he is doing much better trying to not make his sneezes so STRONG!!!!!! He has done much better with it.
I also think for women that it is a great idea to wear some sort of protection so when you do sneeze you do not soak your pants because of bladder control problems. I notice myself when I throw up or whenever I sneeze to hard that as I age ( 46 ) that our bladder weakens as we age and are not able to control it like we could when we were younger. Even if it is a pad which would be cheaper I would think just for protection. It wouldn't hurt.
