Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing with your eyes open is impossible


Avatar n tn I teach and it is impossible to be productive on a day when you can't stop sneezing. It leaves you exhausted when the sneezing finally does stop the next day. I have had all the allergy skin tests done and wasn't allergic to anything. The dr. diagnosed me with non-allergic rinitis and prescribed Astelin which has terrible side effects.
Avatar dr m tn Even microscopic amounts will cause irritation to your delicate voice box, giving you a scratchy throat, cough or hoarseness. This is why these symptoms are most obvious when you first wake up in the morning. It’s also been shown that these same stomach juices can then travel down into the lungs or up into the ears of the sinuses. Pepsin, a digestive enzyme, and H. pylori, a common stomach bacteria, have been found in lung and sinus washings.
1530342 tn?1405020090 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. “It is certainly possible to keep your eyes open if you try while you are sneezing … but it requires working against the reflex,” says co-author Vreeman, assistant professor of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine. “It’s a very strong response.
Avatar dr m tn The front side walls make up your nostrils, which are soft cartilages covered on the inside and outside with skin. The back of your nose is one big cavity (called the nasopharynx), and the passageway turns down 90 degrees into the back of your throat. The nasopharynx is also where your ears connect via the Eustachian tubes. If any part of the anatomy that I described becomes obstructed partially or completely, you'll feel stuffy in your nose.
Avatar m tn You 'wince' and squint, probably rapidly flinching your eyes your eyes knowing a loud bang is going to occur any moment. Your head may also move away from the gun. You drop your head down into your shoulders in anticipation. THAT is the reaction. plus a 'pressure' or micro headache forms behind my eyes somewhere. Mine started as a child (no eye trauma or anything that I remember.
Avatar dr m tn If you answered yes to any of the above, what you will read below will show you how critical it is to breathe well through your nose. Chronic mouth breathing can not only affect your quality of life, but your life, period. As an ear, nose and throat specialist with years of experience helping people breathe better through their noses, I have seen hundreds of people have dramatically improved lives.
Avatar n tn The only thing that I'm wondering about if I'm pregnant or not is when I had sex with my husband for the first time since the IUI, my orgasm felt weird than usual. I could feel something contracting in my uterus. I don't know if that is a sign of being pregnant or if that is normal. Is it too soon to feel that way? Do you know anything about orgasm feeling different when you are pregnant?
Avatar n tn But I did find out recently that if you are having your allergies tested mint is one, but it is on the end of a very long list. It has to be specifically asked for. I have had headaches and upset stomaches just from the smell of mint (and many other things like strong coffee, bacon and dark chocolate) since I was very little. Stomache aches, head aches and diarrhea.
Avatar m tn I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good. None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them.
Avatar n tn You are taking the steps needed to recover and hopefully you will be able to rebuild the trust necessary for you to continue your relationship with your nephew. By the way, has your sister considered the damage she is doing to her son by denying him his relationship with someone who is obviously very important in his life?? Furthermore, why can't you be with him in a setting where you are not alone with him (which to me is still ridiculous, it's not as if you got caught murdering someone!!).

436516 tn?1382388265 sudden tickle in the throat with several seconds of advance notice before the choking cough arrives, simultaneously with the filling of both nostrils with mucus and tears running down the face from one or both eyes. The cough is so severe and persistent as to cause nausea and sometimes vomiting and leaving me unable to speak for a few moments. I had found that sipping a few sips of extremely hot water seems to stop the cough if I catch it fast enough.
Avatar f tn I will stick with the pills. I am so glad I read your post. If you think about it, who is making more money when the drug causes all these medical problems.
544292 tn?1268886268 LOL Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home. Snuggle down, get comfy. There's a lot of information and experience here with getting off Tramadol. It's not impossible, lots of peeps here now living Tram Free Lives! Love & Healing!
Avatar f tn The sounds are the worst because if you lie still and close your eyes, you can get rid of the fast motion. Trying to make silence is more difficult. The reason I was searching for this was because these feeling have just started again over the last few weeks. They don't last long but it's so disorientating. The other feeling I had was an heightened sense of touch where I imagined the feelings of rough and bumpy and it felt like my tongue was too big for my mouth.

Avatar m tn DO NOT RUB THE WATER OUT OF YOUR EYES WITH YOUR HANDS, OR YOUR EYES MAY GET INFECTED! Use the top of one of your wrists to wipe the water out of your eyes. DO NOT TURN AROUND TO FACE THE SHOWERHEAD, UNTIL YOU HAVE STOOD UP STRAIGHT. IF YOU TWIST WHILE YOU ARE STANDING UP, IT WILL INCREASE THE POSSIBILITY OF GETTING DIZZY. Step Two: Tilt your head back and fill both nostrils with saline solution for the second time.
Avatar f tn how come no doctors really know what the long term side effects and the many actual DAMAGEs to the body subutex does?? I stayed on it for about 10 years and it was the most HORRIFIC detox that I almost died. I encourage EVERYONE to (if you're already on it)-GET OFF OF IT, or you're just gonna make the detox harder and harder with time...and if you're thinking about getting PUT on it, THINK AGAIN!!!!! I would LOVE to go around EDUCATING DOCTORS about how HORRIBLE this medication is.
233488 tn?1310696703 If treatment is done additional tears or a retinal detachment could occur but it is much more likely to not occur. It is important for him to follow up regularly with his ophthalmologist for a dilated retina and peripheral retina exam. He should see the Eye MD immediately with sudden increase of floaters, flashes or loss of peripheral vision. You need to ask he surgeon specifically about activity. As a generalization return to golf and tennis would be allowed by most surgeons after 7-10 days.
Avatar f tn keep fighting the fight its gets better by the day and once u start talking weeks and months your eyes will begin 2 open!!!
Avatar m tn 37 wheeled into O.R. eyes rolled back and that all I remember till they wheeled me out about 2:10 p.m. Waking up from the anesthetic was horrible not knowing what they did and I was shaking like crazy, didn’t help when I looked down and seen all the blood on my pillow. It took m a good hour or more to come to; thank god I didn’t throw up. 4:00 p.m. Pain set in, I know everyone handles operations differently, some say this operation is mildly uncomfortable, I say **** no, it’s painful.

429155 tn?1205676864 I am feeling the effects of sleep deprivation now, and am having trouble typing this, very sluggish and the legs are crawling at the moment, also started sneezing real bad, eyes so sore.Shoulders and back also a bit painful.. Tuesday 12:00 Am feeling quite ok, haircut/shave, look almost human lol, sister tells me my eyes look clearer than for a long time, nice to hear a positive comment, had a nice day. Tuesday 15;45 tried to sleep with the help of a sleeping pill, 45 mins later got woken up.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing. I stick with it because my grandson tells me how nice it is now to only have to ask grandpa ONE TIME to be picked up. (Pappa? Pappa? Pappa? Pappa?
675347 tn?1365464245 For most of us "CHEMTRAILS" sounds like a wacky thing. Like maybe some new-age weird idea, or conspiracy theory, or paranoia..... Oh no it isn't! Increasingly, blue skies, throughout the world are being criss-crossed with wide vaporous lines which are obviously not aircraft (contrail) trails. Quite often a huge area is covered with a nework of these "trails". Aluminium has been found -to highly toxic levels -in "pure" mountain melt-water....
544292 tn?1268886268 pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
