Dr Oz did a segment called Ask Dr Oz: Why Does My Body Do That? Doctor Oz answered all kinds of sensitive and even awkward questions about our bodies from Why Do My Feet Tingle After Exercise to Why Do We Sneeze to Why Do I Pee At Night to Why Does Pregnancy Make Your Feet Grow?
Dr Oz: Why Do I Sneeze After Exercise?
Dr Oz was asked by a lady in his audience about her Excessive Sneezing problem. She said that whenever she has vigorous exercise, she always sneezes a lot. Dr Oz said that sneezing is a natural reflex that happens when you irritate the lining of your nose.
Dr Oz showed an animation to explain what makes us sneeze. As you inhale particles, there is a nerve that feeds impulses to your brain stem, which in turn sends a message to your diaphragm which causes you to sneeze all of a sudden. When you sneeze, it travels at around 100 miles per hour and Dr Oz said that there really is not much you can do to prevent sneezing.
People will sneeze when they exercise sometimes because you hyperventilate when you work out, which can irritate the sensitive mechanism and turns on your diaphragm – causing you to sneeze.
