Sneezing non stop

Can anyone please offer me some words of help or advice? I posetd this is another section but I thought I'd increase it's awarenesshere...being as as soon as I got up today I did seven sneezes in a row ands have continued that way for the last hour really.

I came across this forum and I am just looking for anyone who knows a little more than I about this.

I have now been sneezig constantly for four months and counting. A little history...I do have pet rats but have had them for over a year now with no troubles. The hayfever season has been and gone yet still this is here. In the meantime I have had a cold and the sneeze amount has remained constant. I go to sleep like it, it wakes me up in the night, I am like it in the house, out of the house, in work...in short, everywhere. My nose is running all the time too.

I don;t have any other symptoms at all...my eyes don't itch, my head doesn't ache, nothing like that. It is all simply confined to my nose.

I am so fed up with it, all I want to do is cry and cry and cry, it has brought me down so much.

Can anyone help?

Please!

  • Seriously...no ideas at all? No suggestions or guesses? The lack of any sort of quality of life is too much for me, I'm almost back on antidepressants for this. I can't enjoy anything that I used to, it's always there and always occupying my thoughts entirely.No words of advice or encouragement?

  • First of all, have you been to the doctor's? If not, then you should go even if you don't think he could help you. He might just be able to.I've had my share of runny nose with no other symptoms; it just comes and goes, although it has been much better lately. When it is at its worse I take antihistamine with decongestant and that helps. If it's any consolation, at least you don't have any other symptoms to contend with. Good luck.:)

  • Yup, been and seen them, and they have no idea what is wrong with me. I've tried decongestant sprays, vaporisers and allergy pills just in case and nothing seems to work at all.It's pretty distressing now. :(

  • it's probably your adenoids. Go to the doc, it can't hurt. Are you by any chance addicted to opiates? Because that's a withdrawl symptom.

  • I'm not addicted to anything at all.I'm going back to the docs today...sometimes it runs so badly I have to lay tissue on my pillows just to catch it all...very inconvenient that. I'm wondering if this is anything to do with an old head injury which happened last year resulting in some whiplash and was very near my nose.

It is all simply confined to my nose.I am so fed up with it, all I want to do is cry and cry and cry, it has brought me down so much.Can anyone help?Please!Do you eat a lot of sugar?I would recommend you taking wild oregano tablets for 2 weeks max (follow instructions on bottle for daily dosage)- it might be a fungus you have that is causing your immune system to react like that.My bf was miserable like this for years- after a few days on oregano oil- everything is gone. It gets worse when he eats ramen noodles or cookies.Might be wheat related (?). So I made him cut those off.He had tried every single inhaler- and he had random asthma attacks.Eucaliptus leaves are hard to find- but if you can get some for an infusion, they'll help you temporarily. Healthy people are not allergic to their pets. Take some multi vitamins/mineral supplement. Gotta be strong, to keep your hairy babies around :)

  • Would oregano tabs interfere with the pill at all? I'm on that and I know some herbal remedies can be weird with it.

  • I've thought about that...noone will help me so I'm going back to the docs again very soon. It's been a nightmare today, I've had to walk around with tissues just to mop up because it's running literally non stop. Can't breathe at all through my nose either.I've blooming well told the docs the symptoms, how hard can it be for them to send me for one simple scan and be done with it...surely then they'd see what was up? I'm so upset about it all, been half a year that even though I don't really have the money for this sort of thing I'd go private now just for some relief.

  • Hii. I have something similar to this. When I sneeze I sneeze about 16-20 times, and thats average for me. Its sometimes less but not often. I have bad allergies, but not this bad. Does anyone know why I do this?

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • No it's not about the amount of sneezes per episode. As luck would have it I have access to a huge amount of medical literature and although I normally would shy away from any attempt at self diagnosis this time I did and then also went private to see what was up.Turns out I have chronic sinusitis which was left for a whopping 8 months before being seen to. Goes without saying that I'm pretty angry with the doctors for not seeing this sooner. I knew it, the private doctor knows it, he medicated me and things are improving bit by bit.
