I just yawned and my jaw/throat area got a cramp. It hurt really bad for about 10 seconds and felt like someone was sticking a needle in my jaw-throat area! why did this happen?

It is a muscle spasm

Pharynx
When you yawn the jaw muscles can get out of sync and the main opening muscle of the jaw called the lateral pterygoid muscle can get a spasm.It is nothing to worry about. Be careful when you yawn. It is like a charley horse.

To put in short, stuck myself with an allergen needle at work had redness and swelling now woke up with lump in throat that feels sore is it related?

A few questions!

Allergen
Was needle unused or sterile? If not you should be tests for the usually things that are transmitted by needles. If sterile and the site is res and warm to touch you need to have this examined to make sure there is no infection. Go to you primary care doctor for this.

When your at the dentist and they give you anaesthesia if some drips out of the needle and you swallow it will your throat go numb?

Mostly a bad taste

Open-uri20140331-28329-1e68bza
Local anesthesia most likely will leave a very bad taste in your mouth, if a few drops are released in your oral cavity. Other than the bad taste, there will be no permanent harm. Any residual numbness you might feel in the back of your throat is probably a result of topical anesthesia placed at the injection site. That may leave a temporary numbness in your throat, but again it harmless.

Is a needle sedation in the throat for a thyroid biopsy (before the procedure begins) the normal way to go. I am healthy 74 year old woman)?

Thyroid

Pharynx
I think you are asking if local anesthesia (numbing medication) given by an injection is used before a thyroid needle biopsy. I always do but some of my colleagues do not. Suggest you ask before scheduling an appointment.
