Dr Oz: Why Do I Sneeze After Exercise?

    I sneeze all the time about 10 minutes after my workouts. Then when I finally calm down after my shower, I go outside in the light and start sneezing all over again. I just tell people to stop saying “Bless You” or else they would be saying it all day.

  2. Jessica says

    When I eat a big meal, I will sneeze atleast 12 times over a time frame of about 10minutes. Me an my friends always thought I was allergic to something I eat.

  3. Stefani says

    I sneeze when I close my eyes at night. I try to fall asleep, maybe a minute after closing my eyes, I sneeze and that’s it. I sneeze and fall asleep. Every single night, it has never stoped. It’s been so long, I can’t even tell you when it stared. But why when I close my eyes at night? Shouldn’t it be when my eyes are exposed to light?

    I sneeze intensely after mountain bike riding. It comes on so strong that I walk around with a box of tissues for days afterward. Even out to dinner I sometimes must ask for a garbage bag or something to throw my gross tissues into. Its gross and embarrassing, and people always think I’m sick. I’m sick alright. Sick of sneezing…

    I sneeze after going outside after being inside (I call them sun sneezes), anytime I look into light, and after taking nyquil. I also started to sneeze when I finished eating and now I started to sneeze after I drink anything. It is several sneezes in a row.

  6. Mike says

    I sneeze when exposed to bright light. I also sneeze when I take Nyquil and when I eat dark chocolate bars.

  7. Sara says

    The Sun Makes Me Sneeze. Sometimes I Just Can’t Stop (Its Scary When I’m Driving). Other Things That Make Me sneeze Dark Chocolate, Mints, Nyquil And Sometimes Coffee. The Worst Thing That Makes Me Sneeze Is When I food or water go down wrong tube And I Choke A Little, Right After Or while I’m Coughing I Sneeze. Not A Good Combination (Needing To Cough And Sneeze At The Same Time).
