Chinese Woman Locked Her Mouth Open For Laughing Too Hard

 

They say “laughter is the best medicine,” but don’t you dare tell it to this woman who got her jaw locked for laughing too hard while riding the train on her way to Guangzhou South Railway Station.

This woman is lucky that a doctor was onboard the same train and was willing to help her. Doctor Luo Wensheng, who boarded the train in Kunming, Yunnan, was on his way to Liwan Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University when he heard through the train’s speakers that someone was in need of medical assistance.

Many passengers thought that the woman had suffered a stroke but upon testing her blood pressure, it appeared to be normal. However, she had her mouth opened widely and she couldn’t stop drooling, so the doctor asked other passengers what happened prior to the incident.

It was learned upon talking to eye-witnesses that the woman had been laughing the entire time and because of that, her jaw got locked in place, causing her mouth to stay open.

“She was drooling, so I initially thought she had had a stroke,” the Doctor Luo told reporters. “But I took her blood pressure, then asked her some questions, and learned that she had actually dislocated her jaw.”

Though the woman’s condition isn’t exactly in Doctor Luo’s field of expertise, but he still wanted to help because no one else could at the time. The woman also insisted that the doctor do what he can to help her even after warning her about the risk of not getting her jaw adjusted properly.

Luckily, for both the woman and the doctor, the adjustment went smoothly and the woman can finally close her mouth again, thanks to Doctor Luo’s valiant attempt at rescue.

“The patient was quite nervous and her facial muscles were all very tense, so it failed on the first attempt,” Doctor Luo said. “I advised her to go to a hospital instead, but 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.”
