I've had 4 root canals in 4 months. 2 have failed already. Is it normal for the teeth beside root canals to be in pain on and off? One tooth hadn't been bothering me until the tooth beside it had a root canal and crown until a piece chipped off when i was chewing gum (never again!) then my dentist insisted on doing a root canal beside it.

No. Is this the same dentist who did the crown? I think you need to change practice.

Thank you. I think I do and am in the process of searching for one.
