Severe chest pain for over 6mo. Every time I sneeze my chest feels like it's about to burst. Bend over, inhale, cough hurts as well. Bruises afterward?

In brief: Chest wall problem

Hi. There is not enough information here to really guess at a cause.
I wish we knew your age; that helps make some more or less likely. Your symptoms sound like some issue with the chest wall, which could include trauma, broken rib, costochondritis, pleuritis, etc, etc. It's been going on for 6 months...probably time to go see your doctor.
