Nicola Peate tried to eat a a "triple-patty" burger at Almost Famous Burgers in Liverpool, England. It didn't go so well, as the effort left her in pain -which just got worse. By the next morning, it was so bad that she went to the hospital and found that her jaw was dislocated!
An x-ray in the emergency department at the Royal Liverpool university hospital confirmed her fears and a doctor quickly manipulated her jaw back into place using his thumbs.
"The minute it went back in it was like turning a tap off in my head," Peate said.
"All the tension just went."
A second x-ray assured medics that everything was back to normal and she was discharged and warned to "stifle yawns" and not to open her jaw too far for a fortnight.
Peate has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), which means she has hyper-flexible joints that are unstable and therefore prone to dislocation, so she has visited many hospitals over the years.
