When you are sitting in a quiet theater or on a crowded train, it seems a polite choice to hold your sneeze back by covering your nose or closing your mouth.

But the doctor warned everyone not to take this polite approach, because a man tore the inside of his throat just because he tried to hold back his sneeze.

After the 34-year-old man stopped his sneeze by pinching his nose and closing his mouth tightly, he could hardly swallow or speak when he went to the doctor.

When the doctor examined him, he could still hear strange pops and cracks, which stretched from his neck to his chest.

The scan confirmed that the air in the man’s lungs ran into the deep tissues and muscles of the chest because there was nowhere to vent.

An ear, nose and throat specialist at the Trust Health Affiliated Hospital of the University of Leicester released details of the man’s condition in the British Medical Journal case report and warned that trying to hold back a strong sneeze may cause “multiple complications” or even fatal Cerebral aneurysm.

Dr. Yang Wanding, the lead author of the report, said: “It is a dangerous way to stop sneezing by covering your nose and mouth, and this should be avoided.”

This can lead to a variety of complications, such as pseudomediastinum (air trapped in the chest cavity between the two lungs), perforation of the tympanic membrane, and even rupture of a cerebral aneurysm (swollen cerebral blood vessel).

The doctor said that the man’s symptoms were similar to Burhaf’s syndrome. The cause of the disease was the rupture of the esophagus due to intense retching or vomiting. But in this man’s case, the pressure built up from a sneeze with nowhere to go caused a rupture of the pharynx higher in the throat. The position of the pharynx is just behind the tongue.
