Harsh Sneezes

Posted by Belinda on February 26, 2001 at 05:13:32:

Ive had a minor throat infection, laryngitis and a very ,mild cold. I am sneezing a lot, and it seems if I sneeze hard, immediately after I get a headache. Its in my forehead, nose. It passes after awhile, can sneezing cause this? Im hardly stuffed up. Thank you

Belinda.

Take a look at an anatomy book about the size of the sinus ostia.

It takes VERY little swelling to totally close them off and a sneeze generates a lot of pressure to force stuff back into the sinuses--which then takes a time to get back out by cilia action.

This kind of scenario is most common with allergies and hypersensitivities.

Let us know what you learn.

so then is sneezing "bad" for you in general? I do a lot of it, and I'm a very loud violent sneezer.

Hi, kmd.

Try getting into the habit of sneezing through your mouth.

Also, when one feels like sneezing it is usually because the swelling inside the nose is allowing the sides to touch. Pushing up on the tip of the nose frequently pulls the sides apart and the urge to sneeze forcefully will disappear at once.
