"Help Me, I Can't Shut My Mouth!"

You're sitting there in class "listening" to a boring lecture, and then suddenly, your jaw won't shut!

‘All my classmates and teachers thought it was really funny, everyone burst out laughing. It was awful.’

Holly was taken to a school nurse who tried everything from putting a hot water bottle under her chin to using ice packs.

When she showed no sign of improvement, Holly was taken to Northampton General Hospital where her jaw was eventually freed by forcing 26 wooden splints in her mouth.-Bored stiff: Student yawned so hard during lecture that she couldn't close her mouth

Normally, you need a blow to the face to dislocate your jaw, but it can happen sometimes when just yawning or shouting. My advice? Keep your mouth shut!
