You'll never guess

You'll never guess what I did. Quite seriously. No one would ever guess, b/c I'm not sure I've ever heard of this happening to anyone else.

I'm so weird. It's so embarrassing. The other day, I was yawning, a really big yawn. And I pulled a muscle in my tongue. Seriously.

IT HURT SO BAD!!!

At first, I wasn't sure what had exactly happened. I just felt this awful pain in my mouth/throat. It was so painful. As I concentrated a bit more, I realized that the pain was coming from under my tongue, where it attaches itself to the bottom of the mouth. And after yawning another time, I realized that that's what must have caused it.

The pain stuck around for quite a long long time. It didn't help any that I kept on yawning over and over again. I was just so tired! Needless to say, I took a nap that afternoon.

crazy working mom- It doesn't hurt much anymore. I'm just trying really hard not to yawn... which is an impossible thing

OMG - that's so crazy. Who would have thought?! Thanks for coming to say hi. We are all great now that we are home. Can you imagine all of those people who lost everything. That is why we thought that knitting them blankets would at least bring some comfort. Hope all is well. Stop yawning - you are making me yawn!!

I did that just the other day! I think I pull a muscle on the under side of my tongue. Not a fun place to be in pain, huh? :)

I would have never guessed that could be done. Is it weird that just reading about someone else yawning makes me want to yawn over and over?

corinne- really, who WOULD have thought.

sarah- OMG! You did it too? Now I don't feel so weird. [Oh, and welcome; glad you visited]

smalltown rn- can't say I've ever choked on my uvula.

burgh baby's mom- I know what you mean; I always yawn when someone yawns or even just talks about it.
