1530342 tn?1405016490 Okay, how many tried to sneeze with eyes open, just to see if you could do it? Gotta admit, I did it...... I can/do, sometimes, sneeze with my eyes open; it all depends on what's causing my sneeze and how violent it is.
Avatar m tn I have a number of neuro symptoms, no gag reflex, partial paralysis of throat, difficulty swallowing, Exotropia (eyes constantly tend to cross) along with muscle cramps, pain, weakness and fatigue - all progressive. Neuro says MS but never had a positive MRI. My question: Is anyone aware of a neuro/muscular disease with one of the signs being the loss/lack of the sneeze reflex?
Avatar m tn Every couple of hours if I do something such as, bend over, sneeze, massage around my right eye at all or any other motion, I can feel a small amount of water go from one side of my eye, through the tear duct, to the corner of my eye nearest my nose and comes out causing water to poor from my eyes. This is annoying more than anything, but there is some eye pain as well. I don't believe I have any allergies (I'm 21).
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 n tn area with lots of closely packed structures which cause neurological deficits when damaged. 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.
Avatar n tn But the problem is that since many days, I get a sneezing sensation but the automatic sneeze reflex just does not come. The issue started when a sneeze came but it just did not follow through and after that I am just unable to sneeze. Its as if my brain wont allow a sneeze! I feel fine physically. I have no pains etc. Also, it seems a few people had this issue....can anyone help me out if they have gone through the same? As far as I can see, it seems like a mental issue now.
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.
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 n tn In 1997, I had a period of a month or more where I could not sneeze; I would have the urge to sneeze, build up to the sneeze, but it would not come out. Then, I went back to "normal" sneezing. Then several years later, I had the same thing again, for over a month, but again, went back to "normal" sneezing. Now, over two years since the last episode, I have been experiencing the same thing again, for around 6 weeks.
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.
Avatar f tn I am a doctor caring for a patient that was in a car accident and is hospitalized. Yesterday i cut myself shaving under my chin and the patient sneezed right in my mouth, eyes, and (especially my cut). Its was a thick sneeze. Do i go for pyp or test ?
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?
9407801 tn?1403606948 when i sneeze i experience pain in my chest, shoulders which goes all the way to my palms. it lasts from a couple of seconds to minutes. sneezing is now a painfull experience. Its now about 6 months or so.
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 n tn Two of these three same nerves also send other branches to the throat and are involved in triggering the cough reflex, gag reflex, and to a lesser extent actual sneezing. So there is at least a small theoretical basis to support your observations.
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.
Avatar n tn You should have a medical eye exam of your son by a Eye MD ophthalmologist-physician. It may be a 'tic' or mannerism. You may also be seeing "Bell's Reflex" which is the eyes rolling up and out with forced closure of the eye and is a protective reflex that protects the cornea during sleep.
Avatar f tn Her friend sitting next to her has a normal red reflex in both eyes. A friend who is an optometrist has checked her eyes using an ophthalmoscope (undilated) and red reflex is present and no obvious sign of retinoblastoma seen. I am still worried and want to know if a small tumour was present could it cause a bright white reflex i.e do only big tumours cause leukocoria and so it is still possible that a small tumour has been missed?

Avatar m tn I have not being able to sneeze for one week. I get the sensation but it does not develop into a full sneeze. I went to the doctor and he thinks is probably allergy related. Any suggestions? I do suffer from headaches in my forehead, watery eyes, my nose seems dry. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/501932'>hearing tested</a>.
Avatar m tn t make me wheeze or be short of breath, I had an allergic sneeze and very sore eyes.
Avatar m tn i have seen in various photos of people a white reflex or not a true red reflex. but their other photos there will be a red reflex. can angle and flashes cause this too? and would someone w/retinoblastoma be able to see with that eye or have other tell-tale issues? thanks.
Avatar n tn My eyes constantly bother me, I sneeze some, and nasel congestion. Eye doctors find no reason for it. Is this allergies?
