I seriously sneezed just as I was reading this...
Sneezing seems to be a very common symptom during w/d's. I've heard it from most people. Sorry, I don't know why it happens. I'm 2 months into recovery and still sneeze more than I ever did. At least 4-5 times a day. I also snorted half of my pills, so I just assumed I did some damage to my nasal passages or sinuses. But now I think I might just have allergies because everyone in my office is sneezing too.....Unless......they 're all closet addicts and we all just happened to quit at the same time....hmmm... I should watch them closely????
Sorry I don't have any answers, I just wanted you to know I am Captain Sneezy too.

It's just part of it!  It will let up, but I didn't sneeze ANY when I took pills unless I was sick.  That is why we do it during WD.  It'll let up some!

Yes, sneezing is part of withdrawals and very normal! I still have sneezing fits at times! I'm not sure what causes it! Just be glad that you are young, and that your sneezing fits don't cause any, ahem, bladder control issues! Tee Hee!

Take care Toothfairie! You are doing great! Oh, and Bless You!

It's more annoying than anything. I was eating skittles while driving my son home from soccer practice a few weeks ago. I had to sneeze with a mouthful. As I let it rip, I spit my gob of half chewed skittles on the dash of day old truck, then as I inhaled for sneeze #2 half a skittle went up my nasal passage and burned like lava. I honestly think it's still there. (and it smells like a yellow one, the ones that taste like a$$)
My son will never look at me the same again. He just gasped and said " what's wrong with you!" not in a worried, panic sort of way, but more in a "you're a disgusting human being" kind of way.

We did get a good laugh out of that though.

I can't believe I'm still sneezing though. They are good ones too. Loud blasts that can be embarrassing....Still glad to hear everyone went through the same stuff...

Someone wise told me that laughter is good because it shows us our emotions are coming back! I am normally good for a laugh or two :) Maybe not in the last day or so, but generally speaking! hahaha

Bad Co, OMG, that was a little TMI, but a lot of hysterical! Oooops, there goes that little bladder control problem again!

They say "Laughter IS the best Medicine"  I really do believe in that philosophy!

It's even worse when you feel a good sneeze coming and then it doesn't happen.  It's almost like bad sex.

I feel so alone with my sneezes that won't happen.  They hurt my nose and it's like oh yes, yes, it's coming, it's almost out and then nothing.
I have the kleenex ready but no.  It didn't happen.
So disappointing.

Okayyyy you guys!!!!  This is hysterical!!!  I JUST LOVE TO LAUGH!!!
Bad Co had me laughing so hard there were tears running down my face and then all the posts back and forth just continued my uncontrollable laughter!!!  Isn't it SO COOL?????  I am so glad to be feeling all my emotions again.  (On a side note, tonight while I was just reading this, I thought to myself, "self, I don't think you have laughed this hard, this belly clenching, tears rollin, outloud-unable- to- stop laughing since I took hallucenigenics (sp?) in the '70's!!!)  And yes, I'm OLD!!  But, only thing about THAT laughter was that it would NEVER stop and was chemically induced.
I would be beggin to stop laughin after about 4 hrs.
THIS WAS A NATURAL HIGH......GUYS!!!  THANK YOU ALL FOR THAT!

On a serious note, I didn't sneeze either while on opiates, and have read it is our histamines "resetting" and "healing".  Vit C and benedryl have both helped me with that.  (I know.....I know....here she goes)
Luv ya all........t

So, just to put this all in perspective, we've gone from sneezing, to bladder control, (or lack there of), to the sneeze that won't come, to bad sex, to mushrooms! Just so I'm clear..... Or maybe I'm hallucinating  Gooooood grief!
