Chronic fatigue syndrome and braces



Hello. I presently have Damon braces on, and I noticed that on the days when I feel pressure on my teeth from the braces moving them, my chronic fatigue symptoms worsen. Is this just a coincidence, or does wearing braces make people more exausted? Thank you.


There is no direct connection between braces and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is possible that your stress levels are increased because of dental discomfort related to adjustments.
