Whenever I sneeze, I get an excruciating pain in my chest as if it's ripping apart. I've had this for about a year. I figured this just to be an anomaly, but it hasn't gone away. I have a doc's appt. in about a week and I'll tell him about it then. But in the meantime, do any of the brilliant nurse minds here at Allnurses have any ideas as to why I have such pain when I sneeze??? Thanks in advance.
