Sneeze reflex brain

Common Questions and Answers about Sneeze reflex brain


Avatar n tn I know sneezing is a reflex, and supposedly, from what I have read, once it starts, my brain should just automatically finish the sneeze. Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn Is anyone aware of a neuro/muscular disease with one of the signs being the loss/lack of the sneeze reflex?

Avatar m tn Hi all, This will sound extremely bizarre, but I would be grateful if anyone is able to shed some light on this very annoying thing that I am experiencing. It all started when I rubbed my eyes in my mirror 2 years ago, and then my eyes started stinging really badly, and I found I couldn't sneeze for about 2 weeks. For about 2 years now, I have been experiencing an inability to sneeze naturally. The sneeze builds up, but it never completes.
Avatar n tn Also some allergens only cause a mild irritation and their aerosols are not big enough for a sneeze reflex to be completed. The reflex gets initiated because the nasal receptors are tickled and send out the sensation however since the irritant is not big enough to sustain the reflex, the reflex is not completed. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn And immediately, I became scared for no reason and something in my brain changed that resulted me in the inability to sneeze. 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.
Avatar f tn In fact, several sources compared yawning to a long, slow breath.The most consistent facts about yawning are that it is a reflex originating in the brain stem, and that some chemicals stimulate yawning (the most cited were dopamine, ACTH and oxytocin,) while other chemicals inhibit yawning, most notably opiate peptoids.Therefore, we know what is happening physiologically when we yawn, but the reasons why we yawn instead of just taking a deep breath are unknown.
Avatar n tn He said this could be due to leakage of some droplets from the brain. He asked, if I ever felt the dripping sensation from brain to throat or nose. My answer was big 'NO'. I never had any such sensation. I am just irritated by the persistent sneezing sensation and do not have any other problem to be associated with this. The neurologist said that there may be minute leakage and thus I do not feel dripping sensation. To my horror, he said this can lead to Meningitis any time.

383536 tn?1225030613 It is especially bad in the morning, and when I cough or sneeze. DH laughs at me every time I cough or sneeze because I gag so much (it's nervous laughter, because he does NOT do vomit very well). I am 30w4d and thought I would not have to deal with this anymore after my 2nd trimester, but I didn't get that lucky. Good luck to you! I hope it goes away!!
Avatar m tn I will sneeze every time, and if I need to egg the sneeze on, I will look right at the light until I sneeze. If I feel a sneeze coming on, I will either look at the sun or a bright light in a room. I rarely sneeze in a low light situation. My doctor thinks I am nuts, as does my opthamologist. However, my Mom did this (but not my Dad) and both of my daughters do it too. My Mom says that her Mom did it as well. It's very strong reflex and completely uncontrollable.
1375148 tn?1323166921 I'd I sneeze or cough everything slows down and gets fuzzy and the pain starts to increase. I than feel this awful burning and pressure behind my eyes. Which I have on a daily bases but it intensifies and triples in the amount.
Avatar m tn When I sneeze, I start sneezing 12 time with 30 seconds intervals between each sneeze. Does anyone elase have this and is there a remedy?
Avatar n tn I do have OCD which several Dr.s have suggested could be the cause. They say that I am interrupting the sneeze reflex therefore stopping the sneeze from completing itself. I never even thought about sneezing my entire life until the first time this happened. I would like any information anyone has. I am worried that there could be a medical problem causing this although none of the very limited research I have found indicates that. I would like to know if anyone else suffers from this problem.

Avatar f tn This is at least the 7th cold Ive had since being clean. WTF. I have had more colds, etc in the last six months than I had in the past 10 years!!!! On a positive note, I had a physical 2 weeks ago.. bloodwork for everything.. liver, etc - happy to report that I am in perfect health! Hard to imagine all those years of abuse and my liver is A-OK.. I am very thankful and blessed.. Now, if I could just stop with the colds, coughing, bronchitis...
Avatar f tn 14) ive read that it psychological so bc i think of it i dont sneeze bc of some reflex. I've tried pepper. Looking at the sun. steam. snorting water. plucking my eyebrows near eyelids. Please I'm going crazy. I need to sneeze. I just want to sneeze.
Avatar f tn I had the same worries cux i actually had the flu. But u shoukd be ok just remeber to keep hydrated and try to get some rest. The saline sprays might help reduce some of the sneezing! Hope you feel better!
Avatar n tn I know that sometimes when some people feel the need to sneeze they look at a light and this triggers a sneeze. I, too, find this helps. What doen't help, however, is when I walk out of somewhere dark or shaded into somewhere bright, whereupon I break into a violent sneezing fit. These fits usually contain around 5-7 sneezes although my record is 9. This causes great helarity amongst my friends and often to passers by.
2083688 tn?1334601661 Actually its very bad to hold on your sneezes. Not bc ur pregnant but bc it sends the bacteria from ur sneeze into ur brain & u can get meningitis. My son came down with it & the dr told us to never, ever hold in a sneeze.

Avatar f tn Hi allegra_dl, I believe that Ms. Paderla is right. You might be suffering from allergic rhinitis and so as your mother and grandmother. This is a condition wherein sometimes people inherit the disease and may pass to other generations. This kind of allergy does not only concern weather changes but also other allergens like dust mites, pollens, etc.
