In brief: Definitely

Return to the dentist that authored the crown, he most likely expressed the possibility for further treatment if symptoms should develop.
The dentist that diagnosed cts is the one to see. He may have been using the crown to further investigate the health of the tooth. Read this article explaining cracked tooth syndrome http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc3467890/.

You are right, in that the proper thing to do is return to the dentist who did your crown work to see what the problem is.

In brief: Yes

The crown isn't becoming sensitive, the underlying tooth is.
May need additional rx such as root canal. Please c all your dentist today.
