    Have any of you ever had a cramp in your tongue? I had one this morning. Felt like a cramp in the calf, only at the back of the throat. Kind of scary.

    Scary indeed, since I can't even begin to imagine one...

    Sorry, I haven't had a tongue cramp so can't help you.

    I have heard a lot of things in my life - but never this.

    I have trouble imagining how this could be even possible. The muscle tissue in the tongue is quite different in its construction than that in the arm or legs. The mechanism for the pain must be something else.

    Interesting! I would see a doctor.

    Looks like it can happen, thanks google. I think I will wait to see if it happens again.

    If you're willing to wait till it happens again I'm assuming it passed fairly quickly-and that you didn't feel like you were gonna die? :-o -kinda like a normal cramp?

    Yeeesh... That doesn't sound like fun...if it starts happening to you more, I too think that seeing a doctor would be a good idea.
