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.
1530342 tn?1405020090 “When our brain sends this muscle message, one part of the message is to close our eyes. It’s similar to a deep tendon reflex.” A deep tendon reflex is what happens when a physician taps on your knee with that tiny hammer and your knee jerks. It’s simply an uncontrolled body response. Sneezing with your eyes open feels impossible without using your fingers to pry them open. Which has certainly been done, by one of the guys on Mythbusters and countless others.
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 But surely if I had a brain tumour, I would have more serious problems and I wouldn't be able to force myself to sneeze with a tissue (as mentioned earlier)? Most people have said it's purely psychological and the sneeze reflex will eventually return. I hope so! Last year, I visited an ENT specialist, who looked up my nostrils, but didn't see anything wrong, apart from mild redness. She prescribed me some nose drops and nortriptyline tablets to ease the head pressure.
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?
1375148 tn?1323170521 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.
348629 tn?1212329273 sneezing, yawning, watery eyes, diarreah, shakes, hot cold sweats, cold feet, cold hands, sweaty palms, night sweats, sleeplessness, RLS, creepy crawly skin they are all withdrawal symptoms
Avatar f tn I was @ the neurosurgeons awhile back and although at that time he said I didn't warrant surgery at the time if I felt the same/or worse (continued) that I could come back. So I made an appointment recently. Well my appointment is for the 30th of June. My headaches have been increasingly worse as with my neck pain & face pain. I cannot sneeze or cough without it causing tears practically. Thursday I awoke with severe stabbing pains (in which I have never had this type of pain before).
Avatar m tn This triggers my face to turn red, my eyes water, I sneeze,I gag, sometimes lurch like almost vomit yet only liquid seems to pourout of my mouth, and at the same time I may lose urine.It is making me feel very anxious. My husband is having open heart surgery and I need to be there for him and not have to keep leaving the room like I have to do when the cough or itch in the throat starts.
1524304 tn?1326400574 since that i think i've got ridden of that but now i'm not sure whether i still have some type of allergy or not. my nose usually itch and makes me sneeze which is annoying. some time ago i read about allergy to cold air and been wondering if that could be the problem. also when i wake up in mornings i have fulness feeling in my nose and i have to blow my nose (which i do pretty hard). two years ago i had conjunctivitis and doc said it's allergy but didn't explain from what.
1605619 tn?1301635451 7-10 sneezes, like clockwork. My eyes are watery, my nose is stuffed up and I feel like I have a fever. Most days I feel better after being up for about an hour, some days I have to take some Tylenol or ibuprofen. What the heck is this all about??
Avatar m tn Occurence of this doesn't seem very predictable as I can quite comfortably watch TV in the dark, use candles or sit in the sun with no sign of any problem most of the time (except the occasional photic sneeze reflex). Most often the symptoms stop before complete blindness and vomiting occur but I have suffered complete blindness twice and vomiting twice. My tactile sense also seems to be diminished somewhat as well during these episodes.
1087609 tn?1260947985 #3 from time period above Now this is the last 3 weeks or so, Its like everything in my face has stopped working. I have no gag reflex, when I need to sneeze I never follow through, just the build up to the sneeze. I have these coughing/choking fits that come out of nowhere, and the only thing that controls them is chewing gum to help with saliva. And ta da....I have double vision. I was really happy I wasn't having any vision problems until this happened.
Avatar f tn Even the watering of the eyes. I do not know why we sneeze..haha Oh well it is all part of the process. Just keep on stepping forward and Do Not look back..Do you plan on any after care??..This is very important. Sometimes we think we will NEVER do this again..BUT we have a disease that can come out at any given moment with situations at hand. Please be Safe and Keep Your Guard Up as it has been said around here for a long time..Good Luck!!
Avatar n tn Hi, The function of the sneeze reflex is to dislodge foreign matter or irritating material from respiratory passages.The source of irritation that initiates the sneeze reflex is in the nasal passages. Weather change by itself will not cause sneezing.What is probably happening is the load of pollen-common allergen-might be very high at that particular time.The pollen level can be quite different in various areas of a particular city or area.
Avatar n tn Not only do I lose alot of sleep, but by morning, it induces the already hyper-sensitive gag reflex....need I say more. I tried Flonase nasal spray, which worked for me each pregnancy except this one. Nothing has worked, except for an occassional swig of carbonated beverage which seems to clean the back of my throat. But, with the stuffy nose, my biggest complaint that when my babies were born (the last 2) I had a hard time smelling that new baby smell.
Avatar f tn which i ask my doctor if this is related to fibro or my acid reflex ..but i havent had acid reflex in 2 months but i go thur throat spasms 5 times a day which is prolly why i lost 75 lbs in 3 months i cant keep weight on.. when i have this pain im very itchy it is 10 a.m.
Avatar n tn It starts off with a tickle in the throat then followed by watery eyes and then the awlful, horrible cough. I can't breathe or talk. It's just a dry hard cough that continues non stop until I start to sneeze and tears stream down over my face. Then I usually end up having to throw up. My eyes get red and bloodshot and I start to sweat. Then finally some phlem breaks up and it finally starts to slowly calm down. It is absolutely terrifing!
Avatar m tn Congrats to you on day 6! WOOHOO! You will find that random symptoms may pop up from time to time. Just know that the worst is over and you are on the downward spiral. Because the opiates impact our respiratory system, I found that I had all sorts of extra phlegm (along with that sneezing and runny nose) which caused me to throw up randomly. Actually, when I have a bit of a cold, I still do that.:) My gag reflex has never gone back to "normal".
147426 tn?1317269232 This sounds like some sort of primitive reflex being triggered.... Geez Quix! The things that your body thinks up! You too Mae! How are those boobitas of yours? Are they still flat or back to their normal shape.
Avatar n tn My head feels like it is floating ALL the time and I have major pressure in my eyes, across my brow and in my cheeks just under my eyes.
544292 tn?1268886268 Day 33 Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal; Immune System Breakdown ... I guess when the cat is away, the mice they will play. Last night I was alone in the house and steadily starting to believe I had a cold in the nose starting. Got rapidly worse. Searched for the Z-Pac, found the Z-Pac. Took the first dose. Woke up this morning thinking OMG I am so tired. But I didn't feel the "I feel like crawling in a hole and dying" thing. Progress!!
1230181 tn?1269954624 My next big complaint would be the brown outs... I am so sick of standing up and having my eyes dim and I am once again looking for something to hold on to while the faint feeling passes. Everyone seems to have very different complaints, it is really interesting. If you feel that the Chiari is causing you problems the next tests you are looking for are the CINE MRI to check the flow of spinal fluid and the spinal MRI to check for syrinx in the spine.
Avatar f tn Babies who are suffering from withdrawls have trouble eating, sleeping and they have a poor sucking reflex. It's not pretty as they cry excessively. I was prescribed pain killers throughout my pregnancy and waened down VERY SLOWLY with the help of my ob/gyn. I had a beautiful, healthy, perfect little girl who continues to thrive and become smarter and smarter by the minute.
147426 tn?1317269232 So funny! But it's true - the "hush" works for me most all the time. As I'm running for the porcelain pagoda, and it feels like I'm not gonna make it, I stop, stand up straight, close my eyes and say to myself, "you can do this - you can make it". I' don't start moving again right away, and I can feel the spasm pass. Then I walk in a calm manner and take care of business. Often I can stop my leg spasms with this little meditation, but not always.
Avatar n tn I mentioned I had eye twitches that are extremely small and extremely rapid. Well, can you help me understand why when I close my eye hard or sneeze, it aggrivates the twitches and they just go crazy? Can't figure it out. No more questions, I promise! THanks for your help. P.S. I will let those interested know what the diagnosis is, but it might be a while!
Avatar n tn Sometimes an up going movement of the larynx just before a belch is said to be an act of air swallowing. But each belch reflex is preceded by a rising of the larynx. That's part of the reflex because it makes the way clear for the up going content. Look in the mirror or put one hand on the larynx, and observe on what exactly happens in the here-and-now, without influencing... Then you'll observe it's a reflex and no strange maneuver or act of swallowing.
Avatar m tn Noticed that began to scratch his head, hair, face, eyes, ears, nose. At this time next to me, almost all began to cough, to sneeze, to itch. The deterioration has started may be due to the oil vitaon, have ceased to smear. Maybe because of the pills famciclovir, although it took them like summer. Even in a rented apartment it was cold, turned on the heat fan and raised a lot of dust. And most importantly, the past six months began to get up early for work. Slept 4-5 hours.
152264 tn?1280358257 He ordered more auditory testing including perilymph fistula pressure test (negative), acoustic reflex (all normal except the acoustic reflex DECAY was abnormal in the left ear, following the graph for "Nerve VIII disease"), and ABR.
