Muscle stretching Pain

Whenever I laugh freely or stretch my mouth wide vertically, there seems to be stretch in some muscle/gland which is just below the chin. It causes immense pain temporarily and there is paralysing sensation in that part (part of body between chin and throat). What is the underlying reason? Is this dangerous?
