what is the feeling we get when we’re about to sneeze? Why does that feeling go away even if you don’t sneeze?


When you sneeze you feel a ton of relief, when you stifle a sneeze, it feels like shit, but the ‘sneeze’ sensation does go away eventually. What’s happening here ?

Sneezes are generally caused by irritation in your nose/sinus. When you actually sneeze endorphins are released causing you to feel good. However, if you stifle it you don’t get the release of endorphins so no good feeling. The feeling does go away though because you still *sort of* sneeze, which is generally just enough to make the tingly feeling go away.
