The next sneeze is only a dust mite away. Still, the problem remains.
Now I can just say, "I hurt it like Sammy Sosa did." The back pain is awful, but so is feeling like a meathead trying to explain how I got hurt. With rest and ibuprofen, I'm usually restored to normal in about four to six days.
This happens to me once or twice a year. Sometimes, though, the sneeze comes on too quickly, and catches me in a bad position, so that my weak muscligamentendon ends up absorbing the force of the sneeze, and breaks.
I try to sneeze with good posture. I also sneeze a lot, thanks to a mild house dust allergy.
There's a muscle/ligament/tendon (don't know which) in my lower back that I keep on reinjuring over and over. I've been kind of embarrassed about it, but now I know I'm not alone.
