    Thumbs down It hurts when i yawn. [REALLY SCARED]!!!!

    When i yawn i get this awful pain
    in my face and inside of my ears.

    It feels as if i pulled a muscle in
    my face. And a feeling like someones yanking
    at the insides of my ears. And jaw stiffness
    as well.

    It feels like a groin pull inside of my ears.
    Do any of you get these symptoms?

    Hi Micheal,

    You won't find that many people with an inner ear disorder who get this symptom, but you will find plenty of fellow sufferes who have problem/pain in their ears and jaw on yawning, talking, laughing, eating etc... who have tempero mandibular joint disorder. Have you checked out that you definitely have labyrinthitis - been to an otologist or neuro otologist? Had balance tests done? If not, I would consider having yourself thoroughly checked out from this angle, and also visiting a TMJD specialist. I say this as TMJD alone can cause very bad dizziness, as can the neck and shoulder problems that sometimes accompany it. You may not have labyrinthitis at all, especially not if you are experiencing jaw and related ear pain.

    If you do have TMJD then you need to seek treatment, unlike some inner ear disorders which can get better through the course of time, if your dizziness and ear problems are caused by TMJD then you may be greatly helped by splint therapy. A chiropractor could also help you if this is what you have but I would certainly try and get an actual diagnosis first.

    Michael: I really think you should take Hbep's advise...She has studied up on this dizziness thing from all angles and I think she is steering you in the right direction....Yours really seems to be jaw related and if Hbep hadnt already responded to your post, LOL, I would've told you to post one directed for her!
