However, it could also be wheezing, if you have never had it before and don't know what it feels/sounds like. If it is just a cold and you are not at all short of breath or having any pain, not to worry. But if either of the latter, you should be examined with a stethescope. ...Read more

TMJ pain: The TMJ is your "jaw joint". While unusual, it is possible that when you sneezed you put excess stress on your TMJ by either opening really wide and/or tensing up the muscles suddenly. Eat softer foods next few days and take advil (ibuprofen) if needed. Moist heat can sometimes help as well. If pain continues past a few days or reoccurs regularly then see your dentist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
