I am writing to hopefully gain answers for my recent "great" discomfort with yawning. I had a total thryoidectomy in Feb. '08 and the radioactive iodine 131 treatment following in March. Ever since surgery, I have noticed a "popping" sensation when I yawned, but it was never painful. However, on an early morning this past weekend, I yawned and the entire right side of my neck was "caught" in a spasm/contraction. I found myself minutes later rushing to an emergency room praying a dr. could help me because it was too painful to talk or swallow. All they did was provide pain killers and muscle relaxants. Although it did subside by the end of the day, I'm afraid it will reoccur. I seem to have "stumped" my Dr's, so I will sent on for ultrasounds and other various tests. Can you offer any information? Have you heard of this before?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
