Sneezing in restaurants

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing in restaurants


Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Sneezing in restaurants can be due to dust, molds, AC, or due to food sensitivities to a particular type of food. Another possibility is gustatory rhinitis which is triggered the maximum by hot spicy food and alcohol. Usually food items in restaurants are more heavy on oils and spices. Sneezing can also be a response to distended stomach and usually one eats more when one goes out for a meal. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Avatar m tn sneezing only at restaurants and not at home? The sneezing might be a nervous tic. Because you are in a different environment then you're used to you body might use that to get comfortable. Or it might be something in the food, like you said. Some food places may add extra things that ppl wouldnt normally at their home, that could make you sneeze.
Avatar n tn The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn Alternatively, are you sure the sneezing is just related to the dinner, or when he is in the car? There may be an allergen in the car. Another more obscure idea is that somehow this has become some sort of conditioned response from him. He expects it to happen, so it does. I remeber once I got nauseus from a horrible lunch before inside a library. For years after I couldn't enter any public library without feeling sick. I'm fine now.
Avatar n tn I just wanted to say your condition sounds similar to mine, although I am not sure if it is the same or not. Mine happens in both eyes, although it started only in my left eye. I see a circle of light that moves up or down in my peripheral vision. Anyways, let me know if you find out anything. I'm still waiting to see a neurologist.
Avatar f tn How i look at it is I've already peed myself in public for laughing to hard and then sneezing. There is not much else to be embarrassed about..
Avatar f tn Does anyone know of any restaurants that would hire a pregnant woman? I need a new job asap because Im only getting 20hrs a week at my current one and I have n bills piling up the only one Im able to keep going barely is my car :-\ Im in culinary school and am waiting on my Servsafe scores to come out. Hoping that will increase my chances...
Avatar n tn It's tough for all of us because we can't go and eat anywhere, we have to stay close to home all of the time because of his gagging/vomitting problems. It's the worst in the morning, but it happens all day. We used to go out to restaurants to eat, but can not do that anymore because he usually vomits everywhere. Sometimes making it to the bathroom, sometimes not. I've been researching this for a number of years, and we've seen may specialists.
Avatar n tn so sorry if I annoy you but yeah in my mind its just such a likely way to get it. but yeah... ill just try and take your words to heart that its an unlikely way to get it. so handwashing should be good enough as a preventative measure, yeah?
Avatar f tn hi there, I am also a sufferer from this rare illness, I am a Filipino, recently discoverd that the reaction of other people decreases when I stop eating fried foods, bread, pork, anything that has oil in it, I also notice that not all occasion my wife gets that reaction like sneezing, coughing or rubbing her nose, maybe she is already immune.
744596 tn?1246848615 What annoys me is workers I see especially in places like restaurants, and cafes, where they prep food sneezing all over the place, (not with swine flu ) but you know... they just dont care.. I walk out when I see this going on...
Avatar m tn I have the mucus/cough problem each and every morning (same intensity) but the day time issue can vary in severity. I have been using a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom during the night time to see if this alleviates the problem but this does not seem to help. I do not have itchy/watery eyes or any sneezing problems, or a bunged up nose although on occasion I can feel a slight accumulation of mucus behind my nose.

Avatar m tn These bad odors might smell rotten or burned and they tend to occur only in one nostril. In my case, the unpleasant smells started when I sniffed, blew my nose, sneezed or laughed. However they can also manifest for no obvious reason. This disorder progresses over time, but you will probably NOT notice that unpleasant odor directly after you wake up (at least at first). When these smells first appeared, I got temporary relief by pinching on my nose and holding my breath.
Avatar n tn i agree, even when i did smoke i never smoked in restaurants...there is nothing worse than trying to eat and smelling someone light up! i remember when i was a kid trying to eat my breakfast and my mom would sit at the kitchen table and do her hair and smoke..and if not that the ashtray was sitting right there and that stunk worse than the actual smoke.

Avatar n tn I am a 39 year old male. Was in great health until 31 when i began experiencing pressure in the upper neck and head issues. I constantly have to adjust my head/ neck areas to remain balanced each day. There are elements of TMJ & arthritic like conditions involved. I can often press on an area of the upper back/neck and move the tissue and/or disc and have a full sense of clearing all the way to the head but this only lasts for a moment and then the pressure rebuilds quickly.
Avatar f tn Maybe she just had bad allergies? In more recent times, everytime id pick up my friend she would start sneezing crazy. She said i wasn't like this till i got in ur car. I didnt make the patm connection yet, i mean why would u? Next scenario was when i noticed it at work. Before it was like 1 out of 20 ppl, now its almost everybody. So it has definitely gotten worse. Within that yr i was drinking alot. I was moving up in my job, had a nice car, and everything was looking promising.
Avatar n tn Within a few minutes of entering a room, people begin coughing and/or sneezing.(By the way, it's always 2 coughs in a row.) I am not sick at all but everyone around me becomes sick upon meeting me. Doctors have told me that it's just allergy season, but this has been going on for a couple years! Besides the endless coughing and sneezing, other symptoms that people develop include: itching around the eyes and nose, acne (on face and neck), sores on the outer lips, and fatigue.

Virtually all the flu around now is the pandemic H1N1 virus. The H1N1 virus also predominated in the recent winter months of the Southern Hemisphere, which typically spreads north as we have our winter.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn runny nose, watery eyes, coughing and sneezing. Finally in 1997 she went in for a blood test and it showed she had NO allergies. After some investigation into her daily habits discovered the daily swimming in chlorine pools was what was ailing her. What took away the allergy like symptoms was simply saline spray. She was relieved, but frustrated. She had spent ten years and untold amounts of money on drugs that didn't help her-all for a condition she didnt have.
Avatar n tn My nose is killing me and my right eye feels swollen and very matted in the morning. I am sneezing occasionally and have no stuffiness or head pressure...this is weird...
Avatar n tn Try reading the ingredients and eat a corn free diet, most everything has corn in it. It all started 6 years ago after a 2 week visit in China. Maybe China has nothing to do with it. I am 56 great health, no meds.
1228332 tn?1267361885 Isn't that an antidepressant??? I myself have not had any experience w/ this nor do I remember reading anything similiar bu ther are nurses that post here often and maybe can give you some advice?? If you don't mind me askind why is it u do this?? Do u feel an affect from it or have you had previous addictions w/ drugs you sniff and may be just using "drug behavior"? I'm just very curious, good luck in trying to stop as I'm sure it's horrible for your nasal passage..
Avatar n tn Friends, if ever there was a time for CRITICAL analysis, this is it. I'm not sure who produced the stories, and why, but the point-of-view is -as you will see- very negative on psychiatry. Let's have a closer look at what in the videos: First of all, I notice what is NOT there. No information about who produced it, who paid for it and why it was done. Anyone know?
Avatar f tn I am also quite desperate. But I am lucky in that sense that I am usually fine in restaurants, cafes, airplanes, cars etc. But can I use them in the future if I can not work? ;) How is it going with Your work life?
Avatar m tn Hope this can give answer to some of you and mind you that the gluten-free diet is a bit hard to achieve at the beginning, because most food on shelves or restaurants contain very tiny traces of gluten which could trigger a reaction in your body, however once your diet is stabilized you'll feel quite relaxed and hopefully an end to this traumatic problem.
1198664 tn?1368651412 But even though it was bad I'm telling everyone it can be done. No suboxone. No inpatient. Just rode that betch out in my own home in my bedroom mostly the first few days but its done and I'm on the other side now. It can be done.
