"I just am constantly in pain with, you know, my abdomen and my legs are hurting because I've been weak and I can barely eat," Thornley told WABC. "It's not fun at all." And if you've ever sneezed while chewing food, you can empathize.
The sneezing only subsides when Thornley relaxes and listens to music after taking Benadryl, or when she sleeps. But even then, she said she can't shake the sneezes because it happens in her dreams, too. Now, that's just terrifying.
Thornley's parents hope their daughter's story will reach an expert who might discover a cure for the rare condition. "It's hard to watch," said Thornley's father. Sounds like the perfect case for one Gregory House, M.D. It's definitely not Lupus -- it's never Lupus!
