      Is sneezing (due to my allergy) as bad as coughing to create a hernia?

      yes. sneezing is a lot of abdominal pressure.

      How can you prevent sneezing? Is it possible? I have (mild) copd so I do cough and sneeze occasionally.

      Also I assume spirometry isn’t a good idea

      It’s hard to do. Best if you engage your abdominal muscles in preparation for any cough or sneezing.

      Spirometry induces cough. If it’s necessary for your lung function, fine. That may be more important than preventing a hernia
