My sneezes are so powerful and loud I nearly fall over.

I have the photic sneeze reflex, which is predicted by having CC at rs10427255.

"Each copy of the C version at rs10427255 increased one's odds of ACHOO by about 1.3 times."

It's particularly bad when I'm driving in Winter, when the Sun is low in the sky.

I usually sneeze 2 to 3 times, and really let fly, just to get it over with.

My neighbors claim to hear my sneezes, and we are on 1/2 acre lots here. I think I'd blow my brains out if I tried to stifle one. I will say that there is definitely something to the article with respect to other natural happenstance.

interesting...after clintons post, I checked mine and have a ct at rs10427255

I dont sneeze often, but when I do, its a big one...but I'm a pretty big guy so no doubt that has something to do with it
...I used to try to cover them, more out of traditional Canadian politeness I think, but after nearly blowing my brains out a few times, a la Ilmari, and a few times actually hearing a 'pop' in my spine (and I do have a pinched nerve in the spine issue), I stopped trying to cover and just let it blow

Maybe that's why a sneeze is "ACHOO". It's the body's attempt to warn anyone in the area. As in, "At you" -- "Heads up!" or "Incoming!", at it were. ;)

When I checked, I found that all but one of my group of six has rs10427255 CT. The one who doesn't is my daughter. She has CC, but I can't recall that she was any "sneezier" than the rest of us. Well, except that I think she's a "photic" sneezer.

I don't sneeze all that often. As with Basque, some perfumes will set me off. But once a sneeze gets started -- "ah" -- the worst thing is if for some reason I don't get to "CHOO". In my mind, there aren't many things more unpleasant than an interrupted sneezes. Drives me nuts. Of course, many of my "friends" would probably say, "Why drive? It's just a short walk". :crazy:

(And, yes, I can actually think of many things less pleasant than an interrupted sneeze ... just engaging in a little hyperbole, there.)
