When I yawn why does the right side of my neck stiffen up just under my chin is really sore?

When I yawn why does the right side of my neck stiffen up just under my chin is really sore?

Many reasons: If your jaw muscles are irritated from doing a lot of chewing or from clenching or grinding your teeth, yawning can overstimulate the muscles causing a spasm. This spasm leads to the feeling of tension and pain. Try a soft diet for a week or so and see if this helps. You might want to see your dentist or physician as well. Http://www. Nlm. Nih.

I have a lump under the right chin and difficulty swallowing, yawning, speaking. What could this be?

Have it checked out: Your (ENT) doctor should be able to palpate it, and examine your eyes, ears, nose, and throat to determine what it may be. S/he will be able to tell if it's a swollen lymph gland, or a cyst or mass, or related to something else. Without more specifics, it's difficult to determine. If not just an inflamed tonsil, it may need to be imaged by us, and see how much of it is affecting your swallow. ...Read more
