Root canal advice please please help

Hello i had a root canal done in one if my front teeth about 4-5 years ago and about 5 days had a retreatment done on the same tooth cause i was in pain and the doctor found some sort of infection. A few weeks back i began to have pain in my mouth around the same area were i had the only root canal i have and decided to first do a deep cleaning to see if i would feel better but nothing. So i went to a rootcanal specialist to see what was going on cause i got tired of taking ibuprofen everyday. a retreatment was done to the same tooth cause he said he did not like what he saw in the x-ray and the root canal was very old. Its been about 5-6 days since i had the retreatment done and iam begining to get worried cause i feel the same. The only thing that has changed is that before it would hurt without moving my mouth and now it does not. When i try to talk alot something happens cause it begins to hurt. I also feel that area sensitive. Do you think iam not giving the retreatment enough time to do its work or should i be worried? My wife tells me the pain is normal and to give it a few weeks but this is very difficult cause i can't spend the entire day without moving my mouth. The dentist also put me on clindamycin 3 times a day 300mg. What should i do? Please need advice. thanks so much.
