10,000 Sneezes A Day! [Video]

A 12-year-old Virginia girl can't stop sneezing, and after seeing six doctors, her parents still aren't sure what's wrong with her.

When reporters interview Lauren Johnson, they better prepare themselves to say "God bless" over and over again.

Lauren says she sneezes more than 10,000-12,000 times a day, and can sneeze 10 times before finishing a simple sentence.

The 12-year-old has been suffering from the affliction for the past two weeks, after she caught a common cold. One doctor gave Lauren's family a possible diagnosis Tuesday - "irretractable psychogenic disorder."

It's triggered by stress. The condition is rare, and treatment options have not always proven successful.
