Do sneezes stop the body from functioning?

Keith  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi
 
Is it true that when a person sneeze every part of the body stops functioning?
 
Kind regards

What do you think?

That would be upsetting for those who sneeze five or six times in a row.

Donna Griffiths holds the record for the most sneezes in a row. She sneezed 978 days in a row and an estimated 1 million times. So if the body functions stopped I reckon she would have had more to worry about than the sniffles.

One of the most frightening episodes of my life happened recently: a 3-day sneezing bout soon after open-heart surgery. I imagined the worst with each sneeze. But finally, the cardiologist assured me that he never saw a patient cause damage - even after delicate bypass surgery - from sneezing. But it's a very common worry.
