Tooth pain after filling?

I had had some cavitys filled a little over a week ago on my top right back teeth. Prior to this I didn't have any tooth pain. After having the fillings done I have had tooth pain when chewing on that side with those teeth. There is also some sensitivity to cold food/drinks. After a few minutes the pain will go away and be fine as long as I'm not chewing or exposing the teeth to something cold. Sometimes I will feel a very dull pain if I push/rub my tongue against the outside edge of my teeth. Throughout the day I have no pain unless I do something to aggravate those teeth. The tooth pain when I feel it seems about the same as the day I got the Fillings done, maybe a very little bit better. Otc painkillers help but its still a bit difficult to chew on that side still. 

Is this normal or should I have the dentist look at it? Thanks for your time and help!
