Sensitive after fillings

Hello Expert,

I had fillings done last week Thursday and again this Wednesday. The dentist also performed someting on one of my side teeth, which is EXTREMELY sensitive now... the side tooth. Problem is my teeth where the fillings are, are now so sesitive even when I chew bread. Today I have this terrible taste in my mouth and vomitted twice. The smell is coming from my sinus and throat. Do I go back to the Dentist, see a pharmacist or go to my GP for further tests. Really worried.
Thanks Doc

It is best to return to the dentist. usually the sympotms you describe can be treated by either trimming the filling down or sealing the junction between the tooth and the filling

I had a filling in my tooth today. I went to the dentist with a painful tooth and he recomended a root canal.
He could not do it because it was very painful and so with some medicine in it i had to wait for three days.
Yesterday it was not painful at all.
Today after the filling i can hardly eat or even talk because the pain is worse than before i went to the doc on Monday.
I do not know what to do or what this means.
Could it mean that there is a fault in the filling?
what should i do now?
Is the tooth supposed to pain more after the filling?
I just don't understand.
Please advice me.
