root canal done 3 times and i am still in pain!

Hi Doctor,

I had root canal done to my top right premolar 3 years ago by my dentist. It did not work for me. I was then recommended to have an epi-sectomy by a maxcillofacilist the same year. I had it done under anesthetic.
Since then, for the last 2 years i have had problems with the same tooth. I kept going to and fro to my dentist and then to my maxcillofacilist. They took x-rays, gave me Augmentum and said theres nothing wrong with the nerve (its dead!) I should not be feeling anything.
This time, i changed my dentist and about a month ago,the new dentist started root canal on the same tooth, apparently he found another nerve.
2 weeks ago, after no more pain, I had got it capped.
But since last week the pain started again on this newly crownded 3 times done rooth cannal tooth.

Please help me! I don’ t know what else to do. This has costs me a fortunate and I am still in so much pain.

Please recommend the best person to help me.
