I had a root canal about two weeks ago that is about to get a crown, but my gum is sensitive. The temporary crown is sensitive too. Do I have root canal failure, or is this normal?

What you are experiencing is quite normal with a root canal treatment and nothing to worry about. Removing infected tissue causes some irritation and it takes some time for your body to work through and resolve that. As long as the pain doesn’t get worse, I would just go ahead and get your permanent crown.
