    And it hurts soooo much! :cry: I woke up this morning and tried to yawn and my mouth wouldn't open more than a few centimetres. I've managed to eat a few biscuits and drink water, but I can't open my mouth wide enough to get anything else in & I can just about talk! OH just made me a sandwich and I couldn't get it in my mouth!:nope:

    Has any one else ever had this? I think the medical name for it is Trismus.

    My jaw locked for a few days when a wisdom tooth was coming in. Maybe yours is the same?

    Well it's still here :(. I managed to open my mouth wide enough to brush my teeth properly this morning, but I tried to yawn again when I woke up and OH THE AGONY!!!! I've had it before, but it's never lasted longer than a few hours! My jaw really hurts :cry:
