    I never had this happen to me, and thought it was an odd thing to happen when I read this thread. Of course, a couple of days later after being inside all weekend, I opened the door around sunset (sun hits the front door directly)... and after a second of temporary blindness, I sneezed and then laughed remembering this thread.

    It's called the Photic sneeze reflex.

    There are some theories about it but this one I like best:

    The nerves that are responsible for the eye closing and the nerves that trigger the sneezing are close to each other.
    A bright light sends a strong signal through the eye closing nerve and that also stimulates the 'sneezing nerve'.

    I'm not a doctor but that's what I learned at school and yes, I'm affected too.

    No, but I have a sneezing fit when I get hit on a certain part of my nose.

    Doesn't have to be a hard hit either, can be a soft but firm bop on my nose and I sneeze for hours.

    I got the same.
    When going out, when the sun shines, I have to sneeze at least ones, preferably twice.
    However, that's it. No sneezing afterward. I think it's really nice. I luv sneezing if it's not because of fever or any other illness. So relieving. Like an orgasm, I'd say.

    Maybe if you get bitten by a lycan you won't sneeze in the sunlight.

    That's not the same thing.
    I walk outside looking at the ground and I still sneeze.

    Harmor - your eyes, nose and ears are all connected, so while it sounds odd there 'could' be a connection. Might be hay fever tho?
    No fever.
    I'm not really interested in the answer as I have searched the web and read that the eyes and nose are connected and other answers that I won't type due to my laziness.

    Could have sworn you posted this thread before...

    Maybe on a different site we both visit.

    Sneezing when going from dim/dark to bright light

    Who here sneezes when they go from a dimly lit or dark area out into the sunlight?

    I sneeze twice when going into the sunlight.
