 Twelve-Year-Old Texas Girl Sneezes 12,000 Times a Day

Katelyn Thornley, a normal seventh grade student, plays the clarinet and listens to music, but has left several doctors puzzled with her bizarre sneezing condition.

For most people, sneezing can be a welcome relief but for her, this has become a nightmare and has left doctors bewildered. The only relief the seventh grade student, gets is when she falls asleep at the end of each tiring day.

The 12-year-old wishes she could just leave her body for a while, and said that even in her dreams, she sneezes. The mysterious condition in Katelyn occurred after a clarinet lesson, but her parents assumed that it was just an allergy that would go away.

Typical conditions that cause regular sneezing, such as viruses, colds and allergies, have been ruled out. Doctors have suggested that stress may be the main cause.
