A 24-year-old female asked:

Root canal: If you had a root canal completed, then the nerve inside the root that allows you to feel temperature changes has been removed and it's unlikely the sensitivity to cold is coming from the same tooth. However, the root canal treated tooth can be sensitive to pressure or biting or be sore.

Toothache: You really need to see a dentist for an exam including x-rays to evaluate the situation.

Arm and chest pain: It's important that you seek medical attention right away to rule out any systemic issues. It's hard to say if it's related to the root canal treatment since I don't know the details of your case but it could just be a coincidence in timing.
