Question: Sharp pain in perinium when I cough or sneeze.

 jrap - Tue May 19, 2009 3:55 pm

So I'm an otherwise healthy 25 year old male but every once in awhile, probably two or three times a month when I sneeze or cough really hard I get a really sharp pain in my perineum. The pain only last maybe 10 seconds or so but when it happens its pretty crippling. It only happens when I sneeze or cough or sometimes when I'm sick and and I vomit it happens as well. Its been happening for years but because it doesn't happen often and it lasts such a short time I often forget about it and haven't bothered to get it checked out. I assume its not a big deal but but I was hoping to find out what may be the problem.

thanks for any help.

User avatar Hello,Your pain most likely is myofascial in nature and may not mean any pathology.Still it wont be a bad idea just to have a word with your doctor.
