In brief: Call your dentist

Is this a new filling? Was it recently placed? Does it happen when you eat or drink? Is it spontaneous? Does it happen when you drink hot or cold? These are all questions that need to be answered to determine what is causing your pain.
Call your dentist to have this examined.

In brief: Yes

Under the right situations, your saliva and different fillings can act like a very weak battery.
Have this evaluated asap by your dentist !

In brief: Possibilities

May be a fractured tooth.
May be Galvanic Action from silver filling contact a different type of metal filling when you bite down. In either case you should ask your Dentist to evaluate...worth the trip.
