what causes my chest and back to feel like someone just shot my body with a thousand needles when i sneeze?

? nerve

Chest
One theory: If you have an underlying neck or back problem such as a herniated disc, sudden movements such as sneezing or coughing can potentially cause the disc to exert pressure at the nerve and cause pain. Another thought: If you are experiencing concurrent cold symptoms source of pain could be pulmonary. Talk to your doctor regardless.

What happens if i sneeze and it feels like i have needles in my chest?

Costochondritis

Chest
You have inflammation in the chest that hurts to sneeze or cough or breathe. As long as it is not a squeezing type of pain or associated with exertion you should be ok. Try some Motrin 600 or 800 mg three times a day and it should feel better in a few days. If you haven't had a complete physical at you age you should have one. Feel better!

I get pins and needles in my chest whenever I sneeze. They radiate across my shoulders, neck, face and lips and can last up to 5 minutes at a time.

Neck pain?

Neck_pain
Do you suffer from any neck pain? If so get it evaluated, you may have disc disease or arthritis in your neck impinging on a nerve that can result in those sensations.

Dr. John Kayvanfar answered:

What are the causes of chest and back pain when sneezing?

Depends on your age

Generally at young age you are not expected to have any pain. As you get older and tissues are not as strong will cause pain, sneezing, such as cough the produces a lot of force within the chest cavity, and within the spine. This produces stress on the ribs or back and causes pain,with Osteoporosis. However the most common cause of back pain is bulging disc which is pushed out more.

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

What could be causing post chest pain on left with coughing sneezing deep breath?? Have had cough cold- 4wks no fever no purling drainage thbetter ws

Pleurisy

Fever
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.

Seasonal flu

Pain
Seasonal flu It is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. If there is no improvement or sore throat is severe or lasts longer than another week, or you are getting joint pain; see your PCP for evaluation. Hope it helps.
