Headache caused by RCT or teeth grinding?

User Level:
Posted by: Alice88  (10 years ago)
Dear everyone,

I had a root canal done on my bottom left first molar two months ago. My bite was also adjusted. My dentist thought a hard bite and teeth grinding/clenching caused the damage on the tooth. Everything went well until two weeks later, I began to have headaches on the left side. I also get pain behind my left eye and temple.

Is this related to the root canal treatment or to teeth grinding? What else can be done to have the pain completely gone? Any advice or help are appreciated.
