Hello to all,
I'm new to this sight, but have been on the PCa side to about 18 months. My question to any of you with acute sneezing episodes is: When you have an attack of sneezing (sometimes I may sneeze 6 or more times non-stop) do you feel dizzy, perspire, get shaky, and here is the kicker; does anyone experience a sense of ravenous hunger? I mean a feeling of hunger so compelling that you must stop where ever you are and get something; anything to eat. Then after 1 or 2 bites of whatever the urge to eat is gone as if a switch was turned off. I've talked to a couple of doctors about this symptom, but have yet to find any cases of similar sensations.
I did undergo allergy shots for 7+ years, and generally feel that I've improved about 50% since treatments ceased 10 years ago. However this aberration brought on by these occational sneezing episodes is a worry.

Hi Spin :) I get severe attacks of the sneezes but nothing else ever accompanies it. Are you on sort of medications that could cause these odd side effects? Just an idea, maybe the sneeze attacks is depriving you of oxygen or maybe setting off an inner ear problem?
Left sided Uc since '92 - meds - Colazal, Canasa (when needed), 6MP (50-75mgs), Forvia, Biotin (IN REMISSION - sort of!)
Secondary Raynauds Syndrome '04  - meds - Norvasc
Fibromyalgia '06 - no meds
Severe seasonal allergies - meds - Allegra

Hello Red_34,

Thanks for the response. No I'm not on any special meds; just vitamins & Calcium, But the posibility that I'm not getting sufficient oxygen is worth looking into. I also have some hearing lose from my days in the Army. I will ask my doctor about this.
