Sneezing and teeth brushing

I hate them both.  My ute always gets sharp pains when I sneeze, and I pee a little.  And brushing my teeth almost always makes me throw up violently (I pee a little then too).

Re: Sneezing and teeth brushing

  • That doesn't sound like any fun! Sorry you are going through that. Luckily brushing my teeth doesn't make me throw up (or pee). I've been sneezing a lot though and am waiting for the first sniss (I think it's called?). Not sure if you've been doing this or not, but I read somewhere that you should hold your stomach/abdomen when you sneeze or cough and it may help with the RLP. Good luck!

    This! If I hold my stomach or tighten the muscles there before I sneeze it helps a BUNCH with the RLP!

  • I now have to brush my teeth later in the morning and earlier in the evening to prevent gagging/throwing up.  so now I wait to eat breakfast and walk around a little before brushing my teeth.  And then I brush my teeth at around 7-8pm.  Somehow this all helps.  Hope you are able to find some way to help!!
  • I don't throw up, but I gag pretty bad when I brush my teeth and I don't dare try to brush my tongue or roof of my mouth (I think I would throw up then). When I cough, sneeze or blow my nose I have to bend over so it doesn't hurt. Ahhh, the joys of pregnancy! Who's idea was this again!? Oh yeah, MINE!
  • I can sneeze but whenever someone makes me laugh I'm holding my sides cause it hurts so much I'm sitting there like an idiot going 'hahah! stop! hahaha! it's hurt's! hahaha! don't make me laugh!' Which of course leads most people to make funny faces and I laugh more, grrr. Brushing my teeth is a horror, I have to avoid brushing my tongue and breathe through my mouth, if you breathe through the mouth it seems to makes it harder for your body to throw up.

  • Hum while you brush your teeth!  I gagged every time I would brush my teeth.  My sister is a dental hygienist so I asked her for advice.  She said to make sure I was breathing through my nose, but that didn't help very much.  I also Googled it and  read to hum while you brush.  Your gag reflexes won't work while you are humming, you can't do both at the same time.  It has really helped me!  I have to hum louder and concentrate more when I brush the back of my teeth and tongue, but I haven't gagged!

  • Sooooo understand the brushing the teeth thing.  I actually brush my teeth in the shower in the morning and can't eat before it.  I do gag, but I have nothing to throw up so it is short-lived.  I also can't brush my tongue anymore.  But I am pregnant.  :)

  • Yep, brushing my teeth makes me gag too!!  I've even dry heaved a few times from it (no m/s but this puts me over the edge??).  It's awful but at least I haven't eaten anything at that point yet.  And flossing makes me gag too.  My dentist is going to be SO happy when I see him in 3 weeks.  Oh well, it can't be helped.
