Root canal Re-treatment
I would recommend seeing a specialist/endodontist for a second opinion/re-evaluation. We generally recommend 3D cone beam CT imaging to diagnose conditions like these. Pain after 6 months of a root canal is not a normal occurence, hence I would not recommend proceeding with a crown till the condition has been diagnosed.
