Jaw pain and canker sore

I just came back from the dentist a few days ago with two new fillings.  Now I have a canker sore on the left, lower side of my mouth (not on the gum), and I'm experiencing jaw pain in the same area, under my neck.  I can feel where the vein is pulsating with my fingers.  My teeth don't hurt when I chew on that side, and there's no sensitivity to temperature (obviously the canker sore stings when things get into it).  The jaw pain didn't start until after I started using mouthwash in addition to brushing.  Could I have accidentally started some sort of infection when the mouthwash got into my canker?  My bite isn't off either, so I really don't think I've cracked a tooth.  Please help!
