Girl sneezes 12,000 times a day

Katelyn Thornley from Texas, USA has a sneezing problem.

For about three weeks now, she's been sneezing up to 20 times a minute which, if you think about it, equals to about 12,000 achoos a day.

The 12-year-old's parents have been to more than five different doctors but no one is able to explain what's causing this rare condition.

Katelyn says she only gets a break from sneezing when she falls asleep.

The poor child says she always feels pain in her abdomen and she can barely eat.
