Did you up your water intake to be sure?? What about seeing an oral surgeon or a neurologist?

I wonder if your jaw becomes misaligned when yawning. Do you have an overbite and/or gnash your teeth at night? If you are highly concerned, you might want to consult an ENT or, as Maria Antonia suggested, an experienced DDS.

You would need a referral from a general dentist to see an oral surgeon.....you may have a misalignment in your jaw joint which is causing this problem. The nerves which run into your oral cavity loop through the jaws...if pinched they can cause all sorts of sensations. When getting the referral you want an oral surgeon who sees TMJ cases......

Misaligned bite or bruxism are also considerations in what I just was describing to Bonnie....

Sometimes it has to do with a spinal misalignment or twisting when yawning, too.

I have the same problem and am on muscle relaxers for it. Along with a prescription potassium. Just because you ear bananas doesn't mean you are getting enough potassuim..have you had your potassium lever checked? I had to have IV's the first of the year..
