I’ve been having the exact same thing for the past two years, and that’s exactly how I describe it. It’s a constant urge to yawn that briefly goes away when I do manage to yawn, but it quickly comes back.
I find it’s usually absent when i wake up, but the feeling intensifies as the day progresses… up to a point anyways. I seem to get bouts of it that last a month or two with a few months of “remission” in between.
I’ve only seen one doctor about it, and I think he was annoyed to be seeing me about it because he just gave me a few muscle relaxants and said it was probably anxiety.
In class, we were practicing ventilating each other with BVMs, and my teacher was demonstrating it on me and said I had a really tight chest. I’m wondering if I should be pushing for a chest X-ray.
What sort of tests did your doc do?
Isn’t it the most annoying thing in the world?!
My doctor didn’t run any tests on me and pretty much said the same thing as yours did, but also threw in there that it could be exercised induced asthma because its really pronounced when I’m doing high intensity stuff, but I’m not sure thats the case.
She gave me some paperwork to get a pulminary x-ray I do believe, so I’m going to look into that and see if it helps figure out what the hell is going on.
