12-year-old Katelyn Thornley Sneezes 12,000 Times A Day!
If you think you’ve witnessed bizarre things in life, think again, because I’m sure you’ve never come across something like this before. Katelyn Thornley, a 12-year-old girl from Texas, sneezes at least 20 times every minute, which amounts to a ridiculous 12,000 times a day!
According to Katelyn, it started with ‘small spurts’, but went out of control and refused to stop. “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,” says Katelyn. “It’s not fun at all.”
Doctors have been puzzled by this strange illness, and even though they have ruled out possibilities of a virus, the official reason for Katelyn’s strange condition is still unknown. “She can’t really go to school or do anything normal,” said Erika Hodges, Katelyn’s mom. “She can’t eat well, she has to sip. She can’t drink. It’s affected everything.”
Katelyn says that all she wants is for this condition to go away, and for her to go back to being a normal 7th-grade student. A child her age should not go through this kind of pain for any reason whatsoever. Although there is no update on her condition, we hope she has a speedy recovery and resumes her normal life at the earliest. Watch Katelyn’s interview:
