> Am I the only one that has experienced these? I found maybe 4 other references in total from past posts about this, which seems scant.
> It's not so pronounced anymore, but when I'd first started taking Effexor, every time I would yawn (which Effexor makes me do quite a bit), I would experience an intense, shivering sensation that seemed to start in the pit of my stomach, and radiate up towards my head and out towards my fingers, leaving me kind of dazed for several seconds. The previously mentioned posts described it as an orgasm, which is a rough approximation, but it doesn't really involve any genital sensations. More tickling/shivering than pleasurable, really.
> Is this that unusual? Any theories as to just what yawns trigger or induce that could cause this?


I would tell your doctor about it. That doesn't sound so strange except you mentioned that you felt dazed for several seconds afterwards. Some people might think that suggestive of a possible partial seizure. SSRI's/Effexor do something similar to me. In my case, if someone says something really funny, it will make me laugh hard, and then I see spots temporarily and I get dizzy and sometimes have to lean on something to keep from falling down (if I am standing). It could just be from the rush of oxygen from the yawning (or in my cause, laughter).
