Every time I sneeze I feel pain down my legs and I feel like I'm going to pass out. It hurts pretty bad and it really scares me. What is it?

Disk problem?: I think you need to consult an orthopedic surgeon ASAP since this suggests that there is some compression on the nerves to your legs. The passing out may also require a neurology evaluation. Don't delay ...Read more

I've been having a burning sensation in the upper part of my left leg, it also feels like its being pulled, this happens a lot when I cough or sneeze?

I've been having a burning sensation in the upper part of my left leg, it also feels like its being pulled, this happens a lot when I cough or sneeze?

Neuropathy: When you cough or sneeze, it increases pressure in spinal canal, and in presence of nerve compression in lower back, the pain exacerbates, but another explanation includes compression of lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of thigh at hip level. Get this examined. Also, stop smoking now, regardless of the cause of your symptoms. Lung cancer, and COPD is far worse! ...Read more

A month ago sneezed & injured back; couldn't bend over, rested. Passed. Exercised yesterday and now pain back, radiates down lower back to leg. Doctor?

See a doctor: It sounds like you probably have a herniated disc. This will usually respond to rest and physical therapy but see a doctor who can evaluate and set you up with physical therapy. Occasionally surgery is required but should be a last resort. See https://www. Treatingpain. Com/conditions/herniated-disc
stress reduction also helps- see

Lower back pain after sneezing. Hurts a lot to walk. Cant step with right leg without extreme pain in back. What did I do?

Lower back pain: Low back pain can have many causes. Rarely, back pain is caused by a potentially serious spinal condition, such as infection, fracture, or tumor, or a disorder called cauda equina syndrome, which causes weakness and bowel or bladder dysfunction as well as back pain. Back pain that is associated with leg pain, numbness, or weakness can be due to a herniated disc or spinal stenosis. ...Read more

Allergies: You have gotten exposed to something that you are allergic to. It could be something environmental in the air or some sort of food or skin product. Pay attention and see if you can figure out what it is. Try a non-sedating antihistamine like loratadine to help with the itching. ...Read more

See Family Doc: Pain down the leg may be a nerve problem in the back such as sciatica. Sometimes coughing can make this worse as stated in this reference about sciatica : "In most people, the pain is made worse by sneezing, coughing, laughing, or a hard bowel movement." http://www.

Extreme pain down both arms when sneezing/coughing. Numbness/swelling of neck/am. Unable to walk normal/rubber legs. Had neck trauma yrs ago too.

Extreme pain down both arms when sneezing/coughing. Numbness/swelling of neck/am. Unable to walk normal/rubber legs. Had neck trauma yrs ago too.

L'Hermitte Sign: You describe a sign of shooting pain that coincides with pressure on the nerves. Usually this results with neck loading--yours doesn't, it's spontaneous. Spinal stenosis can be a result of disc herniation, arthritic spurs, or congenital defects that result in an abnormally small spinal canal. When associated with leg symptoms as well, this is concerning. You need to be seen by a spine specialist. ...Read more

When I cough too hard, sneeze or vomit my blood vessels hurt. I literally feel pain in my chest, shoulders, arms and legs. How bad is this?

When I cough too hard, sneeze or vomit my blood vessels hurt. I literally feel pain in my chest, shoulders, arms and legs. How bad is this?

Really intense cough: All the parts of your body are connected so if you have a really intense cough it is not surprising that you feel it rattling other parts of your body. Now the question is why are you coughing so intensely. I obviously don't know what is causing the cough. It could be an infectious process, an allergic one or something else. You should see your doc ASAP and get a work up. ...Read more

I have been sneezing alot and every time I do a sharp pain happens in my thigh and chest every time and just recently the pain in my thigh lasted 5min?

This is very strange: And impossible to diagnose remotely. Your intra-abdominal pressure goes up every time you sneeze. If you had a lung problem it could be made worse and cause pain. If you had a spine problem (causing thigh pain) it could conceivably be made worse and cause pain. Hard to tie them both together though. If it keeps up, you should probably be seen. ...Read more

Non-cardiac: Hi. Your pain doesn't have the characteristics I associate with cardiac pain, but more with the sternotomy itself. If the bone is not healing well, you could feel such pain. You could ask the surgeon who did the job. If the bone is shifting with movement, sneezing, etc, it will hurt. Get enough calcium and vitamin D for bone healing to take place. Good luck! ...Read more
