Is it normal for root canaled teeth to be sensitive to biting down one week after RCTs? I have temp fillings and am waiting for crowns. Just worried about failed root canals!

I pretty much avoided biting down/chewing on my root canal until I had the temp crown on, and even then I was very careful. I was very paranoid about pain or breaking something. That being said, no pain chewing on the temp or permanent crown.
