In brief: Muscle soreness

Your muscles in your face are being stretched whenever you yawn.
From doing this repeatedly you are fatiguing them. They are very sore like they went through a workout at the gym. When you yawn you are not taking in a breath. So you are not getting any oxygen. Try getting more sleep on a regular basis for one week. If that doesn't improve the yawning, see a physician.
