See your debtist: The post Endodontic treatment pain varies between patients. If there was a lot of pain, infection, swelling than the tooth may require a longer time to heal. Most patient experience slight discomfort from chewing and bitting. Basically the area feels soar and it may last a few days To a few weeks. In your case it is also possible that your temporary crown may be a bit high. See your dentist

Depends: depends on how symptomatic or angry the tooth was in the beginning but what you described (heavy, bigger, fake with a little biting pain) can be very normal but it sound like the temp crown is off or too big for your bite
