After several years of progressively worsening symptoms, I finally had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with gallstones.  I am scheduled for surgery in two weeks.  My symptoms have been quite consistent with Keri's; however, I developed one symptom recently that my surgeon had not heard of.  I will have sudden onset severe nausea followed a few seconds later by a sneeze, then voila the nausea magically disapears.  This has happened several times since I found out about the gallstones.  I'm in my 40s and never had this before.  The whole nausea/sneeze episode lasts no more than 1 minute start to finish.  Funny thing is, when I get the nausea, I don't have any idea that I'm about to sneeze until I actually do it.  The nausea goes away the second I sneeze.  The doctor said he thought it was a vagal(?) symptom and suggested I take Prilosec for acid reflux.  I've never had reflux, although in the last couple weeks I have developed very uncomfortable fullness, pressure in my lower esophagus that feels like I've eaten too much even if I haven't eaten anything.  Prilosec does nothing.  Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced the nauseaus sneeze with gallbladder symptoms, or am I nuts?  tongue

Hi there,
Ive been living with this odd condition for a few years now. It is exactly what you say.
First the nausua then immediately the sneeze, and with a moment the nausua is gone.

I don't get this everyday and in fact it may not happen for a week or perhaps a month.
But I tend to get it the day after Ive slammed more then a few beers. And after exerting myself hiking some
hills, (my exercise).
I have no other symptoms.. I still have all of my inerds, But I know I have some pockets in my large colon.
Which used to irritate, Its been years since that's bothered me.

so until I see a doctor ,I haven't the foggiest.

Hello all!
I too, have been a nausea/sneeze subject for the past few years.
I've taken a chemotherapy medication daily for the past 9 years, and I had thought that was my connection. But, in light of seeing other possibilities, gall bladder, maybe beers ( smiley face ), acid reflux, etc., I don't know where it stems from. I do know I have learned to love sneezing, and am so close to making myself sneeze on my own.
I am glad I saw this post and didn't pass it by. If anyone else has had successful outcomes to solving this, please post it. I am so tired of my doctor giving me that look. The one you know he thinks you are nuts!

Thanks,
Semp

I have been having these little attacks for a few months now. My gallbladder was removed several years ago so I don't think that's my problem. Just good to get on here and see I'm not going crazy!

I have recently started experiencing this symptom. I have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF) and thought it was related to fluid retention; but that doesn't mesh with anyone else's experience or diagnosis. It is comforting to know others are having this symptom, but of course there is NO comfort in fact that no one has answers, further details or diagnosis. I'll keep watching thread and will post any additional information I obtain to help us with understanding & treatment.

Okay, I know some of these posts are old, but some are recent. I just started having a similar issue but not sure if it's the same. I eat and then feel like I'm about to sneeze and then get nauseous along with the need-to-sneeze feeling (awful, really). This goes on for several minutes while I'm not sure if I need to sneeze or throw up or what's going to happen. Then I burp (gross, sorry) and seem to be okay for the most part... still a little scared to finish my meal, but hungry (sometimes feeling almost famished). It seems to take a few more minutes for me to be able to eat and then I'm okay. I don't have any other symptoms, never had any gallbladder issues, but I do have IBS (and see this seems to be in the chain of how I got here). I typically eat a very healthy Paleo diet and have no flare ups. Now that I'm thinking of it, however, these two episodes I've had (both in the last week) have come after a day of eating things I shouldn't, including dairy and wheat. Hmmm...
