Do you yawn a lot?13/08/2021
Ever wonder why you yawn so much? Like a lot of people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), I have to deal with having chronic fatigue, but I found I was yawning a lot, even if I did manage to sleep well.
I always thought yawning was purely a sign of tiredness or even boredom. But there are an increasing number of scientific theories, that the function of yawning is to cool the brain, and it is possibly a symptom of conditions that increase the brain temperature. Excessive yawning is now increasingly linked to neurological conditions, such as MS.
