| | Awful Stabbing Back Pain When I Cough Or Sneeze--Why??
Hi guys, For the last couple of weeks, every time I cough or sneeze I get a horrible stabbing pain in my back (about halfway down, slightly to the right). The pain is like a knife being driven in and then twisted, it really is the worst pain I've ever felt. It can take from 5 minutes to 30 minutes to go completely. I have been told that I have degenerative disks in my back, but that is more at the bottom of my back than the middle. I don't know why this has started so suddenly, it has only been for the last few weeks and I have has back problems for years and years. Any suggestions would be great,
