Common Questions and Answers about Sneeze reflex in newborn

sneeze

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 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.
383536 tn?1225030613 I had some bad morining sickness in my 1st trimester, and it went away in my 2nd trimester, but I still have a HORRIBLE gag reflex! 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 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.
Avatar f tn Then she did it in front of the nurse, and it was exactly like the startle reflex, only it was repetitive for about 30 seconds. She only did it as she was falling asleep, and you can wake her up out of it. They transferred us to Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis for this, where they put her on phenobarbital. She had an EEG, which showed "a sharp wave in the occipital lobe". What does this mean? She then had a normal MRI, and infections were ruled out.
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 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. Does anybody else have this or know what it is about? I've always called it "light sneezing.
Avatar f tn I figure its flailing hands like a newborn would do
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. It seems that your baby is exhibiting Moro’s reflex. It usually occurs when a baby is startled by a loud sound or movement in response to any sound. This reflex lasts for about five to six months. You may try swaddling your baby when he startles. This is only a possibility. Other causes of startling are infantile seizures, hypocalcemia, metabolic disorders etc.
Avatar f tn Hey mommas im a bit worried my newborn have been sneezing alot idk if he alergic to a vanilla candle he has like a runny nose what should i do or it could b the weather
Avatar m tn I have tried many other things to make myself sneeze, such as plucking eyebrows, breathing in cold air, sniffing pepper or spices, looking at bright lights, chewing gum, eating chocolate, faking a sneeze, tilting my head back, but none of them work! I have done Google searches for this problem countless times. Some people have said it could be that the trigeminal nerve (which controls sneezing) might not be functioning properly, and some people have said it could be a brain tumour or lesion.
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 recently the symptons have got worse and the ear specialists say they cant see anything wrong. when i sneeze or cough, i get a kind of pressure pain in my left ear. sometimes when i train, i seem to trigger something, and the symptoms get worse. I cant skip due to a pressure like pain in my left ear, i feel dizzy and sick when im walking, i get pins and needles behind my left ear when i sneeze cough or raise my voice.
Avatar f tn Does/did anyone's newborn do this? The reflex of when they think they are falling and they jerk their arms out like wings (not sure how to best describe it). I know it's a normal thing; my 8 day old daughter just does it all the time while she sleeps. It just seems odd to me? Anything to worry about?
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 n tn Sneezing is usually caused by a reflex due to nasal irritiation or irritation of the diaphragm. What may be happening in your case, the strong light causes you to blink you eye lids very tightly while holding your breath. This would cause a valsalva and may induce sneezing (diaphragm irritation form the valsalva). This is only a theory. Sorry I can't be more definitive.
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 f tn Pressing on the eye or a cough or sneeze can produce pressure and excite the retinal rods causing a light reflex/pattern. It's called an entoptic phenomena. read the section on that in wikipedia.
Avatar m tn i thought i read and heard that newborn infants can sometimes make quick movements while sleeping or even awake. its like they are trying to work out the kinks in their nervous system. our child will do this once in a while, esp. if someone makes a loud sound. anyone else notice this w/their infants?
1375148 tn?1323166921 gag reflex is a natural reflex to prevent choking. It is controlled by nerves in your throat, if these nerves are damaged you can swallow food that is to large and choke or it will stop you from swallowing in some cases by over reacting. Your GP will check it using a tongue depressor. Reflux is where food and acid comes back up into your throat and causes heartburn. There are many causes including Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) witch is linked to sphincter relaxes.

Avatar f tn From Wikipedia In medicine and neurology, the Babinski response to the plantar reflex is a reflex, named after Joseph Babinski (1857-1932), a French neurologist of Polish descent, that can identify disease of the spinal cord and brain and also exists as a primitive reflex in infants.[1][2] When non-pathological, it is called the plantar reflex, while the term Babinski's sign refers to its pathological form.
