When we sneeze, we hear people say: 'God bless!' You would get tired saying it to this girl – she sneezes 10 times a minute!
This girl named Ira had no such problem in the past. However, now such a simple thing as sneezing turned her life around for worse. She cannot attend school nor do any normal thing kids of her age do.
Her extreme sneezing started 3 weeks ago, and now the girl does it 8 000 times a day! She has been taken by her mother to the doctors. They examined her for allergies or cold. None of these things cause her sneezing.
When the girl goes to sleep, these involuntary movements stop. Just as soon as she wakes up, she resumes doing it. Here is what her mother, who is in despair, has to say about it:
“Three weeks ago she just woke up sneezing, and she has not stopped. It started slowly and had progressed to become more constant and violent. The doctors are saying it is possibly an incorrect signal being sent from her brain or a tic, but nobody can be sure.”
At first, the girl got just a few fits of it, but it grew in intensity and tempo. Now she cannot stop doing, and other kids tease her. This is not the first case in the world. Back in 2009, a 12-year-old girl did that too. It is possible that the immune system of the kids gets severely affected by some infection, and it leads to ongoing sneezing, but doctors have no cure for it yet.
