Texas Girl Who Can’t Stop Sneezing Mystifies Doctors
The 12-year-old from Angleton, Texas started sneezing three weeks ago and hasn't been able to stop.
Fox 26 reports that doctors are baffled at why the girls is sneezing up to 12,000 times a day. Katelyn Thornley is in 7th grade and says she is in constant pain, her legs are weak and she can barely eat.
She had returned three weeks ago from clarinet lessons when the sneezing started and thought she was allergic to something. But the sneezing hasn't stopped since then.
Thornley hasn't been able to go to school and says some kids were making fun of her because of her sneezing fits.
Sleeping has also been a challenge. She dreams she is sneezing and is only able to relax while listening to The Beatles.
Her doctors still don't know what the cause is, but expect it might be stress related.
