You ever laughed so hard in your life that you dislocated your jaw? Well, one woman from china did.
A woman in China laughed so hard that she accidentally dislocated her Jaw. The mouth opening incident happened on September 1, 2019.
The woman was on a high-speed train bound for Guangzhou South Railway Station, which is located in the capital of Guangdong Province in South China.
When she was laughing hysterically, her jaw got dislocated, this left her mouth wide open.
Lucky for her, Doctor Luo Wensheng of Liwan Hospital was on board the train when the incident happened.
Doctor Luo said he was resting when he heard an announcement on the train, asking if there were any doctors onboard.
Dr. Luo added, “I was resting when I heard an announcement asking whether there were any doctors [onboard]. I rushed over and found the passenger unable to speak or close her mouth. She was drooling, so I initially thought she had had a stroke. But I took her blood pressure, then asked her some questions, and learned that she had actually dislocated her jaw.”
Dr. Luo also warned the woman that he is not an expert when it comes to this procedure. He also told her that there was a chance he can’t set the jaw back.
Dr. Luo continued, “The patient was quite nervous and her facial muscles were all very tense, so it failed on the first attempt. I advised her to go to a hospital instead, but the train staff told us it would be another hour. The passenger became very agitated and wanted her jaw set right away, so I agreed to try again.”
Luckily, the doctor was able to pop her jaw back to its original position.
Dr. Wensheng explained, “I did it while she was distracted, and luckily it went back in place. The passenger revealed that she had dislocated her jaw in the past due to repeated vomiting during pregnancy. If you’ve dislocated your jaw in the past, laughing, yawning or even just opening your mouth too wide can lead to it happening again.”
The doctor didn’t share what made the woman laugh so hard, but whatever the reason was, man I bet it was funny.
