Root canal treatment hurting again?

I had a root canal treatment done 5 months ago. It has started to pain again and is more sensitive to hit and cold. I went to the dentist but the X-ray was not showing anything that could make the tooth pain. What should I do?

    Seek another opinion.  Ask for copies of your X-rays.

    Return and have the dentist take an exray to determine what the issue is.  Eons ago, I had a root canal and then afterwards it began hurting............I went back, to the dentist, they did an exray and found out there was blood pooling in the socket....they had to remove the blood and then it was fine.

    Get another dentist's opinion and get that taken care of

    You shouldn't have to go around in pain

    sorry the quack talked you into it ! they did the same to me, I found out later that they are unhealthy, dead teeth flake off dead cells into the body. not healthy at all.... find a Biological dentist that knows what to do, using yelp dot com to find one near you...[ Biological, Holistic, Whole body dentists are the same, just different names.]

    Use a sensitive toothpaste on that tooth. Rub in with your finger and brush off after 10 minutes. Twice a day.

    Sounds as if you have fine cracks in your enamel.

    Quit icy cold food and drinks and use toothpaste for sensitive teeth.

    give it another 5 or 6 months. stay away from hot and cold foods/fluids. Keep taking your pain meds when the pain is unbearable
