Man hospitalized after holding back sneeze

Airway Rupture

Dr Wanding Yang, author of the case study, further explained that the man had always tried to control his sneeze because it was unhygienic to sneeze when there are other people around.

Do not try to suppress a sneeze, doctors have cautioned, highlighting the possibility of serious complications from a burst eardrum to a ruptured artery in the brain if one is unlucky.

A sneeze can propel mucous droplets at a rate of 100 miles an hour.

He told them he had developed a popping sensation in his neck which immediately swelled up after he tried to contain a forceful sneeze by pinching his nose and keeping his mouth clamped shut at the same time.

He was hospitalized for two weeks. Holding back a sneeze can cause ear damage, they wrote, and in some cases even the rupture of a brain aneurysm. I know I do sometimes (a lot) but a new study says it's not safe. Holding back a sneeze, doctors warn, could be risky.

She's in charge! Queen Elizabeth II teased that Princess Charlotte actually bosses around her older brother, Prince George . Queen E, perhaps with a laugh, shared, "It's like that with Charlotte and George ".

So, for the sake of health, go ahead and sneeze, you just may look cute doing it. In this case, it injured the tissue in the man's throat.

Holding your nose and closing your mouth while you sneeze might seem a harmless thing to do, but doctors have advised against it following the case of man who ruptured the back of his throat when doing so. His symptoms got better while he rested and gradually he was able to eat soft food. Doctors have seen patients with similar injuries after coughing heavily or after vomiting forcefully.

Dr Adam Klein told CNN that the man's case is something that usually happens to people involved in minor vehicle accident, people who were shot or stabbed with knife, and in some cases people who swallowed sharp objects. Klein is the director of the Emory Voice Center and chief of the division of laryngology in the department of otolaryngology.

Your best bet? Let 'er rip and use a tissue or the crook of your arm.

He was discharged after seven days with advice to avoid obstructing both his nostrils while sneezing. It "should be avoided, as it may lead to numerous complications".
