Excessive yawning - November 24th 2012, 01:39 AM

Everyday I go through periods when I yawn for about six seconds until I run out of breath, then continue again straight away. I sleep reasonably well and It's not like I'm terribly bored all the time. It often happens when I'm studying or doing chores, which is annoying because my eyes go all watery and I'm constantly wiping them. Also, whenever I do a big yawn My head seems to spin and my body spasms for a bit afterward.
The crazy yawning usually ceases after half an hour to an hour but it's still really annoying and even though I'm not usually tired beforehand, the yawning itself exhausts me.

I try going for walks to get more oxygen, but often I'll return to a normal exhausted state after the walk when I'm indoors again and resting.

Anyone have any ideas?

it's most proberly just tiredness, weather you're sleeping enough or not, your body can be tired maybe due to the things you do throughout the day. exercise tires your body as well as eating to many sugary foods, it could be stress or emotional, mental or physical things going on. all of these result into tiredness that causes continous yawning, i hope this helped

While the reasons people yawn isn't completely understood, some doctors believe it has to do with the temperature of your brain. Yawning can be a way your body cools down your brain, so maybe try to keep yourself in a colder environment and see if the yawning stops happening as often?

Another theory is that yawning is your body's way of remaining alert (as opposed to becoming bored or tired). Maybe that's why you yawn when you're studying or doing chores, your body is trying to make itself more prepared for the task at hand by yawning.
