Low on hydration: Wisdom teeth removal will limit the amount of fluids and nutritional intake mainly due to pain on moving your jaw. You will feel fatigue and weakness. Sometimes the effects of medications, pain medication or anesthesia medications, can also have a lingering effect. Best thing is to rest, take fluids & food on a consistent time schedule. If not better in a day or two, talk to the surgeon.
