Question about chest pain from alot of laughter

9 posts in this topic

I know this probably sounds like a goofy question. My parents and I were having a good laugh last night while watching a show on tv. I got to laughing so much that my chest begin to hurt alot and I got short of breath with it. This happens quite often to me when I'm laughing alot. It gets so bad that I have to be careful to not laugh too much. Has anyone had this happen? I like watching the first few shows of American Idol and sometimes I get to laughing so much that I've turned the channel at that point. That show is so funny at the begining!

Yes it does happen to me, and then I feel short of breath all of a sudden and the next thing I know I'm coughing up a storm. By the time I get it under control I'm exhausted. But its still worth the good laugh!


Warm and gentle hugs,

Sweet- I know SSc makes the lines disappear, but my goodness you are looking a lot younger these days!

Oh that explains the new younger look- I thought you might have had botox or even surgery , but didn't like to ask.

 

Maizy is gorgeous- I want one too!

Hi Sadie

I have similar reaction - I like watching stand up comedy shows and when I laugh I almost can't breathe afterward, and then...also cough and cough. I'm guessing it's some kind of contraction of the airway muscles due to ?????????????

But it is worth the laugh.

Speaking of laughter....

Have you heard of Laughter Yoga?

At a meeting I went to, there was a speaker who spoke of and taught us a mini session on Laughter Yoga. It was so silly at first, but sure made you feel good afterwards.

I've checked and there are free classes held near where I live, so I think I will go occasionally.

Wow, I didn't know how common this pain was from laughing. Scleroderma sure is a weird illness! Cheryle, I haven't heard of Laughter Yoga. You'll have to let us know how

it goes.
