ANGLETON, Texas– It’s baffling doctors and leaving a 12-year-old girl in a lot of pain. According to KRIV, Katelyn Thornley can’t stop sneezing. She sneezes up to 12,000 times a day; that’s about 20 times a minute.

Katelyn and her family spoke to KRIV and said it’s so bad that Katelyn can’t go to school.  It started just a few weeks ago. “I just started in little spurts, sneezing…I’m constantly in pain with my abdomen; my legs are weak. I can barely eat,” Katelyn said.

The family has talked to six doctors, who have ruled out viruses and allergies. Some experts think it may be stress-related.

Katelyn told KRIV the only relief she gets is when she is able to fall asleep after taking Benadryl.  “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.”
