Sneeze after a mint

Common Questions and Answers about Sneeze after a mint


Avatar n tn My wife noticed that every time I started chewing gum I would sneeze. She suggested I stop chewing mint gum for a while. I am a different person now. I went back to the allergist and asked to be tested for mint and we got a positive. The doctor’s comment was “first time in five years that I get a positive to mint.” Well, he may not ever found another case of mint allergy because it is not in his “default” test repertoire, and people don’t even suspect it to request it.
Avatar f tn I always sneeze when I chew on peppermint/spearmint gum. I don't constantly sneeze, just a couple of seconds after I start chewing the gum. And now, I'm gonna tell you something that's so weird... When I was little, I was fine chewing on mint gums and I'm fine when I eat "Chips Ahoy Ice Cream: chocolate mint" or something like that. Anyways, that cookie has mint. But I don't sneeze, cough, choke nothing. Like...
Avatar f tn She has suffered the opposite after her surgeries, constipation. I would take that in a heartbeat. Her and I spend a lot of time together and wish we could combine our troubles. That way we pretty much would have a normal bathroom life. I laughed when I read the phases you went through because I am in the second phase. It started about a week ago and thank goodness the temperature is almost high enough to be able to open the windows again.
Avatar n tn Im a 56 year old female, For about six months now I cough only after I drink water. It is worse at night or in the mornings. The doctor have tried antibiotics , nasal sprays and losengers for yeast. The ENT dr. The primary doctor and the upper GI Dr. do not know what is causing it. I have no trouble swallowing the water. But as son as I do i start to cough. Sometimes I do not stop until I throw up alot of clear mucas or drink milk or sode or eat something.
Avatar n tn Hello, It is possible that you are allergic to mint or any of the constituents in which mint is a co-constituent like in tooth pastes along with mint,number of other ingredients are present. You can find out whether you are allergic to mint or any other ingredient by getting allergy testing done. Skin tests are used for this purpose. This test involves pricking, scratching or injecting food extracts into the patient’s skin.
Avatar n tn I hyperventilated many times in the beginning but after a few weeks I felt stronger and better. After a few months I was able to play basketball again and run like I used to without getting too winded. I had to rebuild my confidence as well as my fitness but everything seemed to be going OK. The only problem was that I still occasionally got the sensation of shortness of breath even though I was well conditioned and frequently became light headed as well.
Avatar n tn i have a little boy so i know what you are talkin about i get the streching feeling in my abs and in my scar I hope every thing works out for you
162948 tn?1205256292 side effects group expect now I'm finding tons of people like me. After insertion, I bled for the first THREE months straight, which after a month I called the doctor and he said it sometimes happens. From then on it's been an on going mess. I will have a period then not again for a month or two, then twice in one month! I have to carry supplies with me all the time. Now MY STRINGS are gone and I have to have the stupid thing SURGICALLY removed!
Avatar f tn I sneeze out loud over and over after inhaling food aroma, pefumes, dust and during cold whether and i will be breathing heavily. Sometimes my face will be swollen n i will have pains at my back with blocked nostrils. However, i don't cough often but i sneeze alot with a fast and heavy breath. There was a time i was treated with ventolin, aminophinine and hydrocot and i was relieved. But after some period, i developed d symptoms again. Does it mean am asthmatic?

Avatar m tn I've been taking it for about 4 days now and while I do notice some relief here and there, the pain still persists. The doctor also told me I had a fever, but I was chewing mint gum at the time and always read that raises mouth temperatures. I got home and retook my temp and it was normal. Tonight it went from not hurting at all, to swapping sides and now hurts on the frontal right part of my head.
Avatar n tn i too live in lr ar. good news for me. after about a week of the strange burning and wet sensations i also started to feel really bad. joint pain, sluggish, headache, very dizzy, very tired and sleepy. then as quickly as all this stuff started-it went away. i haven't had anymore symptoms. possibly a virus??
Avatar m tn These bacteria, such as haemophilus influenzae and streptococcus pneumonae, don’t cause a problem when you are healthy, but after a cold virus infection clogs your nasal passages and weakens your body’s immune system, these germs are able to multiply and thrive. Doctors usually prescribe antibiotics for 10 to 12 days in cases of acute sinusitis. Whether or not the short-term use of antibiotics actually works against sinus infection is still open to debate.
Avatar m tn The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
244969 tn?1215063907 Do not try to overdue it. I started feeling great after a week or so and started light house work....ugh, your body will let you know in a hurry if it's too much. All in all, it's not that bad.
Avatar n tn Mostly at nite time, so I started using that Cold rub stuff that smells like mint that makes me sneeze alot!! lol...that no longer works. I've used a whole tub of it in 2 weeks! Can anyone tell me when I will feel better?? or what to use on my legs?? Now, I'm a tall girl, 6'1 to be exact and as u can tell my legs are 3 quarters of my body, this kinda sucks alot!!! Nothing helps them!!!
Avatar f tn Voice is still hoarse now 3 months, symptoms are getting a little better but still there. I went on a low acid diet and don't eat after 7 pm ....3 weeks now and I'm finally starting to feel better. When I ate toast in the morning, it went down fine but it felt like there was a lump in my throat. It was horrible. I was taking pills for acid reflux but it wasn't until I started the diet do I now feel abit better. Message me if you want to ask any questions.
Avatar f tn And I started using the mouthwash after I noticed these re occurrences so I don’t think it’s that. Well he did a blood test and was negative for stds And everything else came out normal. It went away like the 3rd of January but the tonsil stayed swollen/irritated. And just now it looks like it’s coming back. Called my doctor he recommended me to call a ENT when the sore comes out again so I’m going to try and schedule a appointment as soon as the canker sore reappears.
Avatar n tn I still sneeze a good bit in the morning and occasionally I have a few hours of sneezing that get past my med but I live with it. I try to only use the sprays when it is really bad. Lucky for me, it isn't too often. My triggers so far are related to laundry detergents and some aromas. Hard to figure out my triggers but changing laundry detergent seemed to stop the sneezing in my sleep!
429155 tn?1205676864 - While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
Avatar n tn My first symptoms started up after I got a really bad sunburn and started using a lot of chapstick on them to heal them. But they never cleared up! I've gotten to the point where I use a chapstick of sorts constantly. My lips are always dry! But then when I think they're starting to get better and I just put on a regular pretty lip gloss they start to freak out. They get all red especially around the edges, and sometimes they get swollen and oozy.
Avatar n tn but if there r changes she should be checked as it can change from a sneeze to a MVA that triggers a flare and a change in the position of the tonsils.,... Know u r not alone, nor is ur DD...many parents use this forum for support, and u r welcome to do so too.
Avatar n tn read up on red clouds that is the bacteria in the air usually after a hurrican or tornado. I dont know about you guys but this ***** got to go and I most definately will take the goat dewormer soon as it arrives. Supposedly you can get it at tractor supply, and some walmart and pet co. The will definately have cat and dog safeguard dewromer but the protocol is goat or fish. Goat is 20% fish is stronger.
Avatar m tn Take the medication as prescribed by your doctor. If you take it a few hours before your bedtime at night, they will help you to relax and sleep better. Your doctor has prescribed that dosage for a reason and it will take some weeks for you to start to notice any improvement. If not, then you would need to see the doctor again to adjust the dosage. Staying in bed too long will make you feel worse, give you a headache and make you feel "spaced out".
Avatar n tn I don't think there is a doctor out there that knows what goes on with your body after gall bladder surgery. Look at all the people with the same symptons and no answers. I am at my doctors office all the time trying to find an answer. All test show nothing is wrong. Sure nothing is wrong , that is why I am there. I am single and since my surgery in April of 1998, my life has change for the worse. I can't even date any more.

Avatar n tn I was having a problem with a fishy odor that came on after I started taking fish oil as a nutritional supplement. I quit taking the fish oil, but the smell did not go away. I tried the coriander-cumin-fennel tea that you recommended here and it worked just like you said it did for you. I drank one cup in the morning, another at night before bed, and the next day the smell was gone. I'm still drinking some each day and the smell has not returned. So, I am curious.
Avatar n tn My mom suggested a allergy and I was like no way, never had allergies before. Well after I thought about it I thought well it couldn't hurt to try an allergy drug, so I bought a neti-pot used it for a few days and then bought Alavert 24 hr. allergy tablets (they are orally disintegrating mint flavor). I used the neti-pot 3x's a day plus the Alavert. I woke up on the 6th day of treatment without the smell of cigarette smoke. Next day same thing...smoke free....
436516 tn?1382388265 I gave them a copy of all your comments in this forum which they seemed interested in. (It seems after I give a doctor a copy of everyone else's comments they stop looking at me like I'm nuts) However right from the get go they seemed to be really interested in my symptoms. They didn't seem surprised by what I told them. When I told them sometimes when it really hurts I have to throw up, they said it was probably clear mucus before I finished the sentence.
