does turning the expander key hurt? ?

hi i just got an expander and i have to turn it everyday for 12 days, when my mom went to turn it tonight i got too scared because i’m afraid the pain is gonna be unbearable, they only did it once so far when i first got it on and it wasn’t bad then because it was just put in my mouth, i’m just scared it’ll be worse tonight because i already feel a lot of pressure and pain and can’t eat or chew

    It should not cause "unbearable" pain. At the most it might be "achy" for 5-10 minutes but you need to at least give it a try and see what happens.
