Should my mouth hurt this much?

I had two root canals on two upper right molars and now my entire mouth hurts. Is this common?

After one emergency root canal because of a broken tooth a week before, I went back to the dentist on Saturday and had another pulpotomy on the molar right beside the formerly broken tooth. The dentist the built up and put temporary crowns on both teeth, and he was wonderful. Now, however, my rest of my mouth is throbbing and aches on top of the pain from the treated site. My gums aren't swollen anywhere but on the area that was worked on and there are no other significant symptoms. Has this happened to anyone else? Should I be concerned?
