Can your brain really explode if you hold in a sneeze?


Recommended Posts

I have done some research on this. The only thing I could find was that saying your head will blow up is basically a myth. However, I did read if you hold in a sneeze, one too many times, could cause a problem with your ear drum. It could cause permanent damage and possibly ear infections. Could anyone help out and let me know if this about blowing your ear drums is true please let me know, or if it is even a danger at all to hold in a sneeze!
