When I'm stretching and yawning, I lose almost all my hearing capabilty for a couple of seconds. OK science guys, why does this happen? And, is it only me?

Married??? its subconscience. Save the ears and just simply tell the wife "SHUT THE FUCK UP!"

Change of pressure in the tube that connects the inside of your eardrum to your mouth cavity and your outer ear canal when you yawn.

It is called the eustachian tube and it is conceivable that something about the movement closes it.

Eustacheon tubes.

Could this cause problems in a tactical situation? [;)]

Happendds to me. Because the jaw bone closes the ear canal.
