Pain and sensitivity after filling replacement - normal or not?

I have a very similar problem to you, CS.
I got a filling replaced a month ago, and while I do think it largely subsided after a couple weeks, there still is a weird tinge of pain every now and then. (in my case I think the cold sensitivity has also subsided, it's just a random dull nagging ache sometimes)
I also have a weird compulsion to lick the back of it a lot, like I subconsciously feel like that would make it feel better or something.

Hope you feel better, I'm in the same boat so I'll stay tuned :)
