Referred Pain: Sometimes pain is referred from upper to lower or vice versa. The nerves of the jaw and face have a common origin, the tri-geminal nerve and sometimes "loops" occur. Another thought is the muscle strain or doctor's grip on your jaw when taking the tooth out.

Not sure: Ask your dentist to check the lower teeth carefully.
