Perhaps: Glad you are taking the appropriate steps to resolve your infection. Soreness may be due to temporary crown being in slight hyper function, an easy fix. May be due to some residual infection, as in accessory canals, treatable by an Endodontist. May just be sore because you had an infection and curative surgery. Should gradually feel better over next few days. If not, call your Dentist.

Sure: sure it is normal but no worries because most likely the temp crown is a little high in your bite and you just need a simple bite adjustment on that temp crown
