A 12-year-old girl in Texas is in constant pain as she suffers from a mystery illness that means she sneezes up to 12,000 times a day.

Katelyn Thornley has been to six doctors to try and diagnose what is wrong with ehr but so far the source of her sneezes remains a mystery.

She told CBS: "It just started in little spurts. I just started sneezing. I thought it was like, oh, I'm just allergic to something.

"But now the sneezing fits are taking a serious toll. I'm constantly in pain with my abdomen, my legs are hurting because I've been weak and I can barely eat."

Allergies and viruses have been ruled out but no diagnosis has been found either.

The only time the youngster gets abreak from the sneezing is when she sleeps, aided by medication and Beatles songs, which she says soothes her.
