Teeth hurting after Cardio exercise

I started to workout for the first time in a while yesterday doing the elliptical machine and about 10 mins into my workout my bottom teeth started hurting. It got so bad that i had to stop my workout. The pain was a combination of sensitivity and throbbing pain. It has been 12 hours since then and they are still bothering me. I workout on and off again and have been for years and this is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me. I am concerned that it can be related to a heart issue. Can you please help ?

Hi friend.
While doing exercise our blood circulation in body increases which is same for the teeth also.
As teeth are closed entity they can not handle increase in blood circulation if they are already infected due to tooth decay or fracture or trauma.
So your first priority must be to visit your general dentist and have the check up done.
Also plz mention which area in teeth is paining.
Is it happening in localized area or your all teeth are paining?
Are you able to locate the pain in any specific tooth?

Simetimes while doing extensive workout u tend to tightly close ur mouth, dis causes pressure and pain, alternatively increased blood pressure during workout may lead to worsening of any pulpal disease present previously. So tell me do u see any black discoloration on the chewing surface of the tooth in question??

You should consult a dentist to check if you have any decayed teeth, abscess, periodontitis which could have resulted in the pain. Appropriate treatment should be obtained for the same.
