Moveable toothache

Can anyone provide an explanation for toothache which moves from one tooth to another ? One day there is convincing toothache in one tooth, the following day it is in an entirely different tooth and the next day in a third tooth.
All the teeth involved seem to be crowned or filled

Seeing a dentist to rule out dental pathology is advised. If there is no identifiable dental pathology, you are probably having non-odontogenous toothache. In that case, you may need to see an Orofacial pain specialist.

Thanks, Scottma.

Interestingly the toothache disappeared when I started taking blood pressure pills.

Is your pain on the top or bottom arch?  Have you had any allergy or sinus trouble?  Sometimes sinus pressure and congestion causes radiating tooth pain.
