I was in an early morning class when I began to yawn. I got about halfway through opening my mouth and this incredibly sharp and searing pain came immediately to all of the area underneath my jaw, on the left side of my head behind my ear and to the back of my head at the top of my neck. This pain lasted for about 2 minutes and I tried to message it, only to find out it didn't help at all. It went away on its own but under my jaw (mostly just near my throat now) and the top of my neck are still sore two days later.... can anyone even begin to tell what might've been the cause of this.

I'm going to the doctor on Friday but I am so curious to find out anything I can about it...
