Hello
As you probably might have already gleaned from your internet searches (assuming that you had already done this) a Pneumomediastinum is not common.

It occurs on a background of another clinical diagnosis, either in the lung (such as an acute asthma attack or an interstitial lung disease) or within the Oesophagus (Esophagus if you are from the USA). With the latter there is very often a history of retching or vomiting that predates the occurrence of the Pneumomediastinum.

Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum is rarer still. This implies that the Pneumomediastinum occurred without any apparent recognised (or pre-existing) cause.

It would be helpful for you to have a consultation with a Respiratory Physician or Pulmolnologist close to where you live. You would need a complete respiratory work up after you have recovered from your Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum. The evaluation would assist your doctor with the evidence to base any advise that is offered.
