reherniate from sneezing??!?!

So ive had some lingering opposite leg (and sometimes original leg) pain and am at 3 months post op. i had a follow up MRI with and without contrast 2 weeks ago and it showed no reherniation.
well up until not, if i have leg pain and i rest for a day it goes way down.
a couple days ago i came down with the flu which sucks... im on a bunch of meds but i cant help couching a ton and sneezing a ton. last night i woke up with a terrible coughing/sneezing fit. afterwards i had a sharp pain in my low back for a second and the sciatica down my original leg. its not as bad as before surgery (its maybe a 4-5 and before surgery was a 10+).
anyways ive been resting all day but its still there with some slight tingly/numbness weird feeling in my toe. im SO freaked out. i keep trying to not sneeze but i cant help it when ive got a cold or watever this crap is.
UGH.... im so scared i reherniated and will not know for a long time cuz i just had an mri done. crap.
sorry...just coming here to freak out.
