Brief Answer:
Take tylenol for relief!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this extreme pain that you have reported. This is possible caused by the contractions of the muscles of the chest as you sneezed. Take tylenol for relief and this will regress. There is no need to be afraid as this isn’t unexpected and can be explained by the hard sneeze.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
