Sneeze reflex action

Common Questions and Answers about Sneeze reflex action


Avatar f tn If you had pan earlier and tried to voluntarily stop a sneeze or a yawn, you may have got habituated to it and now it may be happening due to a reflex action. Try not to think about it too much. With time the sneeze or yawn will come automatically. However, if you still have pain or are yawning and sneezing too much but unable to do so, please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn Strokes in the lateral medulla can abolish the sneeze reflex but in association with other signs of stroke such as clumsiness, weakness or sensoru loss, or inability to swallow a reflex has both afferent (incoming to the nervous system)) and efferent (outgoing) components. An interuption can occur at any point, not necessarily in the brain, and block the final response. So, for instance the problem could be with your sensation of the insult that trigger the sneeze.
Avatar f tn Now I can’t sneeze at all and when I feel the urge to sneeze, I will think that “I’m gonna sneeze, I’m gonna sneeze” and then I couldn’t because I kept thinking about it. Now I have headache, ear and eye pain which I think might be due to lack of sneeze. I’m always constantly thinking of not being able to sneeze and I find it hard not to not think about it. If there’s anyone facing the same problem as me please get into contact with me. I want to talk to someone.
Avatar m tn up and spit it out because I notice the back of my throat burning. Problem is I have a terrible gag reflex, and doing that generally means I gag until I can get it out of my throat. Now to my problem, three weeks ago I gagged like usual and developed what I thought was an exertion or coughing headache, which I've had before from this or working out. They usually went away in a few days. This one is still here, and started off in a very particular spot, on my left frontal part of my head.
Avatar f tn I can relate to the dreams in ''tec/na color''and also with the sneezing I think it is just reflex action that the methadone suppressed just keep doing what your doing try and get out for a walk even if your tired exorcize helps with the ''energy crash'' your sleep will come back slowly keep posting for support good luck and God bless.......
544292 tn?1268886268 Distraction techniques are best for me. I like to watch either light funny movies or action films. The action films help me not feel as angry. Or help me feel more angry. Both of which are useful states of mind. I was kind of expecting a complete immune system crash since all my body's energy is being used to toss Tramadol out on it's posterior! But I am just doing everything I can to try and make it so that I won't say, Get Bronchitis and then Pneumonia.
Avatar f tn The photic sneeze reflex (also known as photoptarmosis, Autosomal Dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst Syndrome (ACHOO)[1] and colloquially sun sneezing) is a condition that causes variably difficult to control sneezing in response to numerous stimuli, such as looking at bright lights or periocular (surrounding the eyeball) injection. The condition affects 18-35% of the population, but its exact mechanism of action is not well understood.
Avatar f tn The MRI seems to show that my L5/S1 disc tissue is pushing into my spinal chord. I have absolutely no reflex action in my right leg. And I don't know what to do. At the moment I can stand up straight. I can walk (sort of). But I can't really lay down or sleep comfortably. And I'm deathly afraid of getting back in this state again. I think my doctor is going to recommend surgery. And I don't know what to do. I've heard too many stories of people who didn't really get relief from surgery.
Avatar f tn To top it off I have this strange pain in the front of the right side of my neck, hurts worse when I cough, sneeze, talk, swallow or look left. I get a string of pain going down into my left clavicle. Lesion is 3mm, neuro said its kind of small and isnt sure ms or not? MRA, MRI of thoracic(he wouldn't order cervical mri, said there was no need to)sed rate, ana, ssb,anticoagliation, and few others I cant remember. Also wanted me to see rheumatologist.
695104 tn?1442197188 Neuro did emg tests, reflex tests, etc. told hubby he hated to say it, but he is not one to gloss things over, and Dr was almost certain hubby had ALS/Lou Gehrig's. Over the course of 3 weeks, hubby went for MRI, lumbar puncture, and other tests. At the appt to get results, we actually got "good" the fact it wasn't ALS, but MS. Dr said he had never had a case of MS present like hubbys. Hubby had lesions on cervical spine, and in the brain.
Avatar n tn So I am wondering if the cold liquid is triggering a nerve or muscular reflex that leads to immediate irritation and coughing. Another thought I had was that maybe the composition of the water, and especially the ice, has in it some kind of irritant. What made me think of that is a memory of eating/drinking Ice Pops as a kid (those multi-colored sugary liquids sealed in plastic tubes that you freeze) and it having a similar effect of tickling my throat and making me cough.
Avatar m tn When they itched, I also automatically like the head scratching (not because it itches, and reflex movements), but I was in control. Then start very itchy in my groin. Smeared vitaon at night. Two years smeared vitaon. Has become easier, the itching was only in the morning and evening. Redness from brushing passed. In the autumn 2012 (or spring 2013) started worsening. Some people started to sneeze. Noticed that began to scratch his head, hair, face, eyes, ears, nose.
Avatar n tn I also have had this problem for several months, I am 37 yr old female, I was diagnosed with pnumonia back in august and have had this problem ever since, I also still have pain when i take deep breaths and get winded very easily, i just crenge when i have to hiccup or sneeze or hurts...but like you all my husband and kid thinks i am annoyed when i do the sudden breaths, and i have told them a million times its just the way my lungs do since the pnumonia,, so if any help please post..
Avatar f tn There are too many question marks in my head as to whats going on that I reached a point that the process of elimination of med intake is my best course of action.. I fail to believe how the warnings that accompany these pain control meds seem to be so very limited to what extended use of some of these can lead to. This lyrica thread and associated wd's being described certainly were not in anything I had read earlier. Just glad I didn't get into them any deeper than I did.
Avatar n tn hi i too have had similar pain, it started about 6 months ago, the pain is mostly in the upper left area of my back, under the shoulder blade. when i take a deep breath i can feel it. also, when i sneeze it feels like theres a bubble in my back about to burst and i get a sharp pain. lately, my neck has been sore, just on the left side almost like a crick from sleeping in a draft. my left shoulder hurts when i lift my hand above my head or stretch it out in front of me.
620923 tn?1452919248 Let's see.... extreme ear pain which feels like red-hot ice picks have been stuck in my head through the ears. bladder pain/pain on urination... comes and goes. Just wierd. The mazillion cricket chorus in my ears, but very lightly. There's a couple more, but can't think of them right now!
Avatar m tn This involves you being able to ignore your gag reflex a bit. 1. Pour some minty fresh Listermint into a small cup, just enough that you can dip your right index finger (if you are right handed) into it. This disinfects (somewhat, assuming you also washed your hands first) and lubricates your finger. 2. Where you feel the rice/food is stuck, put your finger there at the very back and top of your throat (it should be a soft palate, not the hard palate of your mouth...
Avatar n tn to be very helpful even though I do not agree with everything in the Action To Take sections and felt it may help some of the posters here. Good luck. Never give up your pursuit of good health! I did not have enough space to add this info to the posting. Chris Woolston is a health and medical writer with a master's degree in biology. He is a contributing editor at Consumer Health Interactive, and was the staff writer at Hippocrates, a magazine for physicians.
Avatar n tn This was not the normal gagging reflex expected of some people having an OGD but rather a violent choking. Whilst on the table choking, I was knocked out completely with an additional, heavy dose of sedation. I awoke later in the recovery ward. It was not a case of amnesia of me “thinking” I had been knocked out because I couldn’t remember, - the additional mid procedure heavy dose of sedation was stated on the report. I’ve had the click swallow ever since.
Avatar m tn A cold usually lasts for a week, sometimes two weeks, or more for some nasty strains, or if your immune system handles it well, only 2 or 3 days. A cold makes you sneeze, makes your nose run, stuffs up your nose, makes your throat rough or sore or hoarse, and you can get mild chills or fever, and you might get a headache, and you might just feel funky and tired and sick. Sometimes, a cold won’t cause any symptoms at all, and it will clear up in the same amount of time.
Avatar f tn There are green stuff,sometimes black, sticking on the flesh in my nostril. sometimes if I sneeze hard enough after flushing my nose, i might get them out. those are the stuff that cause the smell. The more you flush the faster it heals that is what the doctor told me. Until 3 month after the surgery, I flushed out a piece of green stuff out of my right nostril. this time it is about 2 cm long and its hardness is like a small fish bone.
Avatar n tn Yawning is a neural and muscular reflex mechanism that occurs from the brain stem. Is it possible that a virus could damage that mechanism? We've got so many new viruses from mutation and they've been know to affect every part of our body. Also, apparently yawning may be controlled by the hypothalamus, through neurotransmitters and hormones. Maybe it might be time to see a neurologist to see if you have any luck there..
Avatar n tn Aloe Vera juice, Magnesium Orotate, ice on my neck, ice on my face, cold water on my face, Cayenne pepper, pound my chest, bear down, sneeze, cough, hot tea, cold tea, cry, breathing exercises, tapping, laser on heart meridian which is on your pinky finger between tip & below nail of pinky, lay down, stand up, you name it, I've done it, tried it. Sometime they work, sometimes they don't. There's no rhyme or reason to A Fib.
Avatar n tn The theory was that the hyoid bone never fused together into a solid bone and a cough or sneeze or yawn or laugh or any sudden pressure in my throad caused a part that was not attached to the rest of the bone to "pop" out. My doctor was just amazed at my x-rays showing that my hyoid did not move in unison. In fact, the radiologist that was doing the x-rays started saying, "oh my God!" "I've never seen anything like that before." "That is so strange.
