This neologism is not original with me; I read about it. But I think it fits so well that I just have to share it.

I do not have the ACHOO syndrome myself, but I know people who do. Good thing it's not fatal1

***************SPOILER*********************
ACHOO stands for Autosomnal Compelling Helio-Opthalmic Outburst, a.k.a. photic sneeze reflex, which occurs in from 10-35% of the population. It is believed there may be a genetic component. The article also mentioned other causes of sneezing, such as over-eating, eating chocolate, and thinking about or having sex. I would say this is a field ripe for neologistic creation!


I knew this would be a quickie. Thanks to the small but elite group who took part!

Anything minty like polo mints or toothpaste makes me sneeze.
