Root canal?

I have been whitening my tooth with bleach given to me by my dentist for two weeks now. The tray doesn't for right and causes pressure. Recently I noticed on one tooth when I press a certain area near the gum it causes pain. Is this a normal side effect of teeth bleaching or should I be concerned?

I know sensitivity was a side effect. But I have stopped bleaching and am going to wait to see if it goes away before consulting the dentist. I had a dental exam in May and all was fine and only bleached a handful of times. I think I may be having sensitivity due to my poorly fitting tray and the bleach

Bleaching material may irritate gum, going back to your dentist to have a follow  up exam is advised.
