Question confused about my health - June 23rd 2013, 04:04 PM

Hello Everyone,
I need advice. I am constantly yawning and can't figure out why, I am not even tired. People are always asking me are you tired and I say no I always yawn or if I really don't know the person I say yes. On top of being tired my oxygen levels are 96% last time I checked. Do they go hand in hand? Its frustrating yawning all the time and not knowing why. Is this normal? What's wrong with me? PLEASE HELP!

I'm not entirely sure what this could be if you haven't been having any sleeping difficulties, but I know that excessive yawning can sometimes be seen in people with anxiety or who are stressed. It would probably be best if you went and saw a doctor about this if it continues for awhile as it might be the symptom of something more serious.

I could dwell on my problems... But I'd rather make a milkshake...

If I'm nervous, I yawn about every other minute. I theorize that the reason for this is that when I'm anxious about something, I take very shallow breaths. My breathing rate slows down from the normal rate, and I have less oxygen then I normally do. To counteract this, I yawn.

People ask me the same thing, haha. I'd recommend being more conscious of how you breath: Breath deeply, completely into your lungs, then release it all, then draw it all back in again.

Anna's Personal Keys to Happiness
1. Do what you want within the bounds of reason, whenever you want to, and regret nothing. 2. If you have an opinion, don't beat around the bush, or there isn't a point in saying it. 3. Don't keep the company of anyone who won't like you and will try to change you.
