Does anyone sneeze when they look at the sun?
For some reason every morning on my way to the gym or while running on the trails when I look directly towards the sun or the general area my eyes water up and I sneeze. ALMOST everytime! Any one have any similar experiences?
It used to happen to me after leaving the cool darkness of church on Sunday morning and getting out into the bright Florida sun. Almost every time, it seemed.
Yes - I think of it as an allergy ...
It's funny. I have accepted this but never thought to ask if anyone else suffers the same. Nice to know it's not just me
I agree Fordie! In a way i love it because its my "wake up call." Getting all the toxins and ickey stuff out lol
When my oldest daughter steps outside in any bright daylight, she sneezes, so does her oldest daughter.
My son and I don't, but my husband and daughter do. I read about it in one of my kids "believe it or not" books. It is an actual condition that has been named by science (I don't remember what it is called). I think the book said about 25% of people have this condition. I believe it has something to do with the sun or a bright light stimulating nerve cells. (?). Maybe someone more knowledgable will chime in here. And to think, when I met my husband, I just thought he was quirky. Very interesting!
It's called "Photic Sneezing Disorder"
I have it, as many do. That's why they say "look up at a light when you're about to sneeze" because for many, myself included - it works.
The Airforce almost banned people with PSD from being fighter pilots, for fear of sneezing when coming out of cloud cover. For whatever reason, this did not happen.
I have never heard of this happening to anyone. That is very interesting that it could cause someone to sneeze. Looking into the sun doesn't cause me to sneeze personally, but I definitely squint my eyes!
Yes. This works for me. If I feel a sneeze coming on and I look at the sun or a light then I sneeze. Interesting to read that there is a medical term for this.
It happens to me all the time. I just need to look at the bathroom lamp every morning to sneeze. It makes me wake up.
yes...it's kind of allergy..but i haven't come across anyone who sneezes when they look at the sun.

Does anyone know if beagles have worse separation than other breeds of dogs?I just went on a walk with my daughter and beagle. My daughter went inside a house to babysit and our beagle went insane - crying and howling the highest pitched sounds I've ever heard. It was the worst case of separation...

hmmm... Does anyone know? I was channel surfing and I saw a dog show and it was in the terrier group. But, I tuned in a little late so I didn't get the name of the terrier. Oh, and an interesting fact was that Alfred Hitchcock had one. I'm searching on the internet but I can't seem to find...

Does anyone have any opinions on Ron Paul?I am not well versed politically, I have been studying the political game as some recent hubs I've read sparked renewed interest. I am just another confused, fed up with the system voter.
