Back Molar - Root Canal

I have a bottom molar on the left side of my mouth that got a really bad cavity because I had a horizontal wisdom tooth pushing up against it. I got my wisdom teeth removed so my dentist could go in and see if she could fix and look at the tooth that was affected. The cavity was very close to the nerve! She went ahead and got rid of all the decay she saw and put in a filling. She said she gave me some medication that would allow me to know whether or not I needed a root canal. She said sensitivity was normal, but I feel an aching I need to report it to her. After 3 days, I felt fine. My mouth felt fine. But I now feel some aching and slight pain in the area. Did I just annoy the area, or what? Would have the medication triggered pain on the first day only or is it capable of triggering it now?
