sneeze

Avatar n tn after i sneeze or laugh ,i get a a bright light in my vision and that is all i can see for about 30 to 40 seconds then my vision comes back and i get a headache
Avatar n tn 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. It has happened as long as I can remember and although it's never been a huge problem I just would like to know why.

645800 tn?1466864555 Hi Dennis, I can relate a little, I´ve had a different sneezing than usually. It is like I can´t control the muscles in my mouth, and my sneezing is very "messy" instead of me usually sneezing very quietly with closed mouth for all my live (mom sneezes the same way). My sneezes changed last fall sept-oct when I was in some kind of flair (alot was happening, but begun with tight throat) and then I´ve been having a very simular kind of flare, last for over a month now.
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.

1742220 tn?1331360327 I really understand that ive been abusing opiates for close to 20 years. ok not 20. but I know I am dam lucky to be in such good health as I am! with that said ... Open Season on Complaining my sinuses are still haywire. freakin haywire! I wake up not only with the huge headache, which is tension, unrelated to the sinus thing I think, but SO congested. which is kind of weird I take benedryl every night ... or maybe that is why. I always get mixed up between anti hist and de congest.
Avatar n tn For the past one year, I am suffering from sensation of sneezing but sneeze does not comes out. This is very irritating. Looking at bright light was of no help. First, I have been to a homeopathic doctor. He gave me the medicine to suppress the sneezing sensation. My throat went sour and I have to discontinue the medicine. Then I went to another homeopathic doctor but the medicine was of no help. According to an ENT specialist this was no problem at all and advised me not to bother.
Avatar n tn Sneezing can further be triggered through sudden exposure to bright light, a particularly full stomach, or as a result of unexpected, climatic variations in one's environment such as rapid changes in temperature and humidity levels. Therefore, a sneeze may trigger the outflow of trapped mucous material in the nasal cavity as well as substances from the respiratory or pharyngeal areas. This may be responsible for the bad smell. Hope this answered your query.
Avatar n tn Hi, A sneeze (or sternutation) is a semi-autonomous, convulsive expulsion of air from the lungs, most commonly caused by foreign particles irritating the nasal mucosa. Sneezing can further be triggered through sudden exposure to bright light, a particularly full stomach, or as a result of unexpected, climatic variations in one's environment such as rapid changes in temperature and humidity levels.
Avatar n tn Sneezing can further be triggered through sudden exposure to bright light, a particularly full stomach, or as a result of unexpected, climatic variations in one's environment such as rapid changes in temperature and humidity levels. Therefore, there may be multiple causes of sneezing and you can investigate the cause of sneezing in your case. You mentioned the use of a laptop being associated with this, therefore you may find some hint at the location where your laptop is placed.

Avatar n tn Saturday night we received a small dusting of snow in Montreal, (yes very early even by our standards) and when I awoke Sunday AM the sneezing started. In the past though sparingly in the past year, I would have small sneeze attacks after stepping out of the shower in the morning and it would go away after getting dressed, these "shower attacks" don't happen as often anymore.
Avatar m tn One of the most confusing aspects of this is that the sensitivity varies from day to day and even throughout the day. For example, while sitting in a room with the ceiling light on is perfectly fine at present, just yesterday I was very bothered by the light when I woke up, and it was dimmer in my room at the time than it is now. It seems to be worse during the school year, perhaps a combination of stress and worse habits with eating and sleeping.

Avatar n tn I have had the bubble like kaleidoscope thing going on ONLY in bright light in my peripheral vision..I have seen a eye doctor and a neurologist had a MRI no one seems to know what is going on.. The Neurologist seems to think it some thing to do with Ocular Migraine. I have had this probably 6moths now... At least I know I have not had a stroke and no tumours...
Avatar m tn For the past several months, I've been seeing shapes in my vision similar to what you would see after staring at a bright light. However, I see these all the time, even without staring at a bright light source. I also don't seem to be blinking very often. maybe 1-3 times a minute. I had an eye screening with a ophthalmologist a couple of months ago who said my eyes look fine. Could this be some sort of neurological problem instead?
Avatar m tn hello everyone Almost 5 days back I had flu and running nose. For this problem, I have taken medicine which I also use before sometime for the same problem. Each tablet contains 5mg Loratadine & 120mg Pseudoephedrine Sulfate. In past, it gives me good results but this time after taking this medicine my flu is batter but I can't sneeze. I have tried almost all methods like "Wiggle a tissue in the nose", "Look up toward a bright light", Sniff a spice etc but all waste.
Avatar n tn It is this guilt that leads us to fearing PAWS, in my opinion. You see, in this world, when you are guilty of something, YOU ARE PUNISHED. You commit a crime, you are punished with incarceration. You break a rule in school, you are suspended. You break something in the house as a child, you are spanked. When you take opiates to escape this real world, you are punished with PAWS.
Avatar n tn yesterday i began to see pink and then it became bright red blood. i have to wear a pantiliner but the bright red is very light. i have taken 3 hpts and 1 blood test, they all were negative. I've cramping for two days pretty much constantly. Is this possible the implantation process or maybe an early miscarriage.

Avatar m tn I went back to the doctor and they are redoing the lenses now in hopes to rid the headaches completely. Even when Im not working and havent been in front of a computer in hours, I still have some of the symptoms. The dull pressurized feeling is more frequent than the "aches" that intermittenly come in waves. At times I even feel slightly dizzy. Not to the point that I'm going to fall, or the room is spinning, but slightly off bal and slightly hard to focus.
572651 tn?1531002957 I drove a big service van and carried hundreds of pounds of equipment up ladders sometimes three stories high all day long. I worked on 135 degree roofs in summer and below freezing in winter. I still love mechanical things. Oh and I did this after dropping out of Grad School for Art History.
1094771 tn?1330284476 Hi I am jumping in late into this thread. I was not sure if I would be starting this month or in February, but as of Tuesday we got the thumbs up from our RE that we would start once my period shows up which by my calculations will be Jan 23. I am to call the office and go in on the third day. I got my list of meds I cannot believe my eyes...I like allgood427 cannot not even look when I see a needle much less give it to myself.
Avatar f tn I can still remember feeling great when I went in to see the Dr. I know what I am in for, I have been through this many times before but this seems worse because Christmas is coming up and I am NOT JOLLY at all. I am a very active 50 year old women with a nice job, I have this Monday And Tuesday off but I have to work the rest of the week. I have a family who does not know and has never known, whenever I go through withdrawl I blame it on the Lupus.
Avatar f tn I notice that I see this when my sinuses are inflamed along with pressure added by sneezing, or if I am taking a hot bath and then stand up, or if I go out into the bright sunshine. I do have sensitive eyes and bright light does bother me. When my sinuses are not inflamed then I do not see this spot no matter what the activity is that I am doing. I have been trying to treat my sinuses with nasal steroids. So far these have not helped.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar n tn also released something from my inner mouth like a light coming out the center of my throat and fly out fast and leave...bright sharp white cackling light....so like..idk...i'm Christian...could be spiritual maybe? idk...
