Feeling lightheaded, nauseous and dizzy after getting the wisdom teeth removed. Difficulty in concentration. Is this normal?

I recently had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed (5 days ago). I am feeling very dizzy, lightheaded, and slightly nauseous. I am no longer taking any drugs and I m feeling even worse since I stopped taking them yesterday. I have a little pain and soreness where the teeth were extracted, but it is nothing horrible. I find it very hard to focus on anything and the lightheadedness is almost unbarable. Any ideas as to what I could be experiencing?

Getting all the wisdom teeth removed in a single appointment is someting, that is usually not recommended, since it requires anesthesia, and it is a surgical traumatic procedure.
Since you have got all the 4 teeth removed, it is very common for the patient to feel such symptoms even after removal of a single wisdom tooth. you need to maintain an extra precautionary measures for your oral hygeine. have warm saline or betadine gargles 2 to 3 times a day. avoid smoking, hot and spicy foods. Since healing of extraction sockets of molar teeth requires a considerable time, these symptoms are usually felt for few days. Avoid any rigrorus physical activities. and REPEAT THE MEDICATIONS GIVEN TO YOU FOR THREE MORE DAYS.
Don't worry, things will become better soon
