Is it normal to have a quick chest pain when sneezing?

Pleurisy: You have classic pleurisy symptoms. This is an infection which can be due to virus, bacteria or mycoplasma. If you've been coughing a lot, you could have a muscular component as well now. If your chest x-ray is clear, you will get better gradually. Take Ibuprofen or Naproxen and be patient. If you haven't had a chest xray, consult your doctor to see if it's necessary after you're examined. Read more

When I poke a finger on my upper body anywhere between chest and abdomen it hurts. Also, I usually have chest pain while sneezing. I am 24+. what is it?

When I poke a finger on my upper body anywhere between chest and abdomen it hurts. Also, I usually have chest pain while sneezing. I am 24+. what is it?

Intercostal muscle.: Sounds like either intercostal muscle strain (strain of muscles b/w the ribs) or costochondritis (CC), inflammation of the cartilage where the ribs connect with the sternum. When u sneeze, the muscles between the ribs contract to help force air out; if strained, then sneezing makes the muscles sore. Pressing on the muscles has the same effect. Alternately, CC is rare but gives tenderness to touch. Read more
