How long does the sneezing last?

I'm on day 11.  On or about day 4 I started sneezing.  I sneeze like 10 times in a row, probably 6 times a day.  It seems to have gotten worse over the last few days. Other than that I feel pretty good.  Any idea how much longer I can expect to be sneezing like this?

Did the frequency of your sneezing ease up over time during that month?

I'm still sneezing too!  It's soooo annoying when you are out some place and people look at you like a walking germ..lol.  Mine get worse if I'm feeling stressed (which seems like all the time), but I had one day a few days ago that I only sneezed a few times.  I sneeze exactly two times in a row every time!  I hope to hear about more people who have finally gotten through it.

I also didn't start sneezing until around day 3...mine was alot at first, but then went away within a few weeks...I would always think of it as my body was waking up....

I had sneezing fits for up to a half hour at a time.....I literally could get nothing done while I was doin' that...I couldn't see with my eyes closed the whole time like they are when ya sneeze, and I had a hand up constantly to catch the spray.  I was talkin' to a friend on here one day and I had to tell him I couldn't talk because of the sneezing and I'd catch him when it was done....I finally got done, and then about 15 minutes later, it started up again!

Yeah - sneezing is annoying but normal.  I sneezed a lot the first month, then much less during the second - but still here and there.  Total for me was about 2 months. And yes - Congrats on 11 days!
