I have a few more questions to ask, is that ok?

Ok

How old is she?
Did she have a headache before the sneezing started?
Does she have a history of migraines or seizures?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
She is 12 years old; no history of migraines or seizures.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
She hasn't complained of any headaches.

Obviously unusual for an allergic source to be causing that much sneezing. Did the ER do any tests when she was there?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
They did a urine rest and a nasal X-ray...everything came back fine.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Sorry, urine sample test...

Did she have a recent injury to her nose and that is why they did the nasal X-ray?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No, no injury to her nose...They just wanted to make sure she didn't have anything in her nasal cavity.

And I'm assuming the allergist looked in her nose as well?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Oh my goodness, really? Yes, the allergist looked in her nose, her mouth, her ears and listened to her lungs...And the ER did the same things and added a saline nasal rinse.

Sorry to ask, but you'd be surprised how sometimes there is only a very basic exam.

If she doesn't have any significant allergic component for her sneezing, then my recommendation would be neurology consult since two of the cranial nerves contribute to the sneezing reflex.

The neurologist might consider a CT scan to look at the brain and nasal passage, which would give more information than the nasal bone X-ray.

Does that make sense?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It does... I'll make an appointment tomorrow. Thank you.

you're welcome and please update us on what the neurologist thinks as well.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
