Is night sweat common after wisdom tooth extraction?

Is it common to get night sweat after wisdom teeth removal? I had mine removed two days ago with an oral surgeon. He didn't give me any antibiotic which was strange to me. I started to have night sweat the second night after the removal. I also have chill and headache too.

Thanks for using health care magic.

Read your query.

Removal of tooth usually do not cause any night sweating, if more please report back to your dentist .

For the pain you can take ibuprofen tab for two to three days and cap amoxillin 500 mg three times a day for 3 days (If you are not allergic to any medicine).

Do saline gargling .

Hope this was useful.

Thanks and regards.
