Sorry but..: Sorry but this requires an exam, x-rays and some tests that need to be done personally and not over the internet. How long ago was the rct and crown done? When did the symptoms first appear? "no one knows"?- who have you seen? This may require a second opinion by an endodontist and\or general dentist. A cbct scan (3d image) may be helpful with a diagnosis.

Shock like pain: It's not unusual for there to be some soreness, that gradually diminishes after dental treatment. If it does not, perhaps the tooth has fractured or the root canal treatment is not optimal. You may need to see a specialist Endodontist for a CBCT evaluation.
