12-year-old Texas girl can’t stop sneezing

A 12-year-old girl in Texas is in desperate need of help, because she can’t go one minute without sneezing!


Katelyn Thornley, 12, started sneezing incessantly about a month ago – and hasn’t stopped.

The family has consulted with six physicians which have ruled out viruses and allergies as causes for the sneezing.

“Sometimes I wish I could leave my body for a little while so i could watch myself sleep and be at peace because even in my dreams, I sneeze”, she said. I’m constantly in pain with my abdomen, my legs are weak.

She also says the sneezing has compromised her way of life, forcing her out of school and preventing her from playing her beloved clarinet.

Katelyn and her parents have gone public with her plight in the hope that somebody with knowledge of whatever condition she might be suffering from will come forward and offer help. I just started in little spurts, sneezing. The teenager feels so bad she had to stop going to school.

Katelyn Thornley of Houston, Texas, can not stop sneezing.


Tics are brief, repetitive movements and vocalizations and those parts of her presentation fit, he said. He said the sneezing is easy to trigger. “I can barely eat”, the young girl told the press in an interview, as cited by Fox 8.
