hi.i think ur sister in law is undergoing orthodontic treatment.pain during active phase of orthodontic treatment is not abnormal.compression forces applied for tooth movement may sometimes cause too much pain, if the patient has low pain threshold.trembling of lips is also seen due to pain and anxiety.visit your orthodontist, he will minimize the amount of activation force.dont worry to much, u wil be alright.wish u good healt
