Question:

My partner had 2 wisdom teeth extracted 2 days ago under local anesthetic and is suffering from sore throat (very hard to swallow), high temperature, sweating, dizziness, weakness and fatigue. Is this normal?

Answer:

No, this is not normal.  I recommend that you contact the person who performed the extractions as soon as possible to set up a follow up appointment.
