Anyone else have this?

About one out of every 8 or so beers I try cause me to have a mild lock-jaw type of pain. Not debilitating, but definite tightness and sore.

Doesn't seem to be any one style or label.

Are you drinking 8 beers in one night? And are you drinking them from the bottle, can or glass? If you are drinking from the bottle it might be your jaw doesn't like the bottle and maybe you need to pour it into a glass and drink it that way.

Maybe you need to see a dentist as it may be unrelated to the beer - coincidental.

No it's just one beer I'm drinking overall...but about one out of eight that I'll sample will give me this sensation. Interesting thought about the bottle, maybe I'll notice next time.

Well, that used to happen to me, but then I bought a bottle opener and it stopped.

HAHAHA.....you are too funny

Original Poster, pay attention to the beer you are drinking when it happens, it could be an ingredient used more in one than the other beer (ie: more hops, more wheat, etc.) which could in turn cause the reaction you get because of an underlying dental issue that is more sensitive when you have that particular beer.
I really have no idea so I'm just giving an option that may or may not be practical.

Also, one other thought, are the beers about the same temperature? Perhaps one is colder than the others and it is causing the sensitivity in your mouth.

I was intrigued... never heard of anything like this... and I was floored when i found that lots and lots of people suffer this type of pain. i found one health forum thread that went on for 18 pages, with dozens of people checking in to say it happens to them, but with no easy solutions to be found. Doctors are stumped.

Process of elimination by the group, it's not sulfites, it's not dehydration, it's not alcohol... it may have something to do with cold and acid together... it seems to have a genetic component, because it runs in families... and the current best guess seems to be that it involves a spasm of the salivary glands or a temporary blockage of the Parotid ducts triggered by something you eat or drink.

My condolences... there seems to be nothing anyone can do about it. They say misery loves company, so here's some other folks who feel miserable in case you want to hook up with the group...

Funny, when I was younger I used to have something similar on occasion from eating extra sharp cheese.

that hasn't happened to me. but then again, it's rare that i get up to 8 beers in one session now a days.... BUT, i have noticed that sometimes my nose feels stuffy after some beers. i think it depends on what type of hops is used in the beer....i know my wife is the same way, after a couple of hoppy beers, she sounds like she's sick cause she is so stuffed up.....

so maybe its some type of allergic reaction?
