Hi user thank you for posting your qurey. Pain after root canal treatment usaually subside after proper filling of the canal and crown .But in your case it still presists there could perapical lesion .so to rule out you may need a x ray done again. To see the rct filling and infection or lesion below the root.if so you need to undergo re-rct and course of antiboitic along with painkiller (like cap.novaclox LB 3 times a day after food , and same tablet tramadol 50) .And skip not your routine medicine for hbp and diabetic.For further help mail back to us.visit your near by dentist.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

After sucessful root canal treatment the canals are completely devitalised, disinfected and sealed to the apex so there are no chances of pain.
Pain after the treatment indicates incompeltely done procedure, any left over pulp tissue or re-infection.
I would suggest you to visit the concerned Dentist and get the checkup done take an x-ray done, depending upon which re-RCT can be performed if needed.
Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash rinses.

Hope this helps out.

Regards..
