8 year old has mild fever after palatial expander tightened: My daughter just had a palatial expander put in and after we tightened it she felt pressure on the bridge of her nose, (which we expected).
But, she also has a mild fever and says her whole body aches and feels sore, is this common? ..... Visitor from TX
It is possible, but perhaps remote, that the physical stress she is "feeling" may be affecting her overall resistance levels.
It may be worthwhile to use a less aggressive tightening procedure in an effort to reduce the symptoms.
