sun sneezes anyone?

Postby Adamk on July 10th, 2013, 10:28 pm

Since i can remember I have always sneezed when I got from a indoor setting to a sunny outdoor one. I did some research on it and not a lot of people are wired like this. Some think I may be similar to the way lights cause epileptic seizures in some people. Others think that its just a way to make your eyes dilate quicker. I think it just feel good! nothing like a little sun sneeze to let you clear your head.
Anyone else get those?

When children here need to sneeze and cannot, parents tell them to look into the sun. This makes them sneeze. I do that too , and many others here. So I guess that is just totally normal

that is pretty normal reaction, I have it too. I have read somwhere that the cause is unknown, but it is definitely harmless and funny thing.

Yes, I have that too. It's called "Photic Sneeze Reflex":
