Re: chest injury caused by sneezing

You might have damaged a rib or one of the chest wall muscles. In most cases, these types of injuries are painful but not too dangerous. Occasionally, if breathing deeply and coughing are too painful, people with chest injuries can develop chest infections.

If it's that painful, you should probably get it checked out in the morning. The doctor might do an x-ray to see if a rib is cracked.
