You know I had the same problem and I went back to the endodontist who did the root canal and in my case it was even longer than a year later and there was no fee charged. His office does not charge for follow-up on a root canal that they performed. Perhaps this is the case with yours and they will see you at no charge?
I think it is a fairly common practice and maybe they can tell you what is going on with the tooth. Just a thought. Good luck to you.

oh and another thought - in my case the crown needed adjusting as the pain was caused by the crown being not quite right and throwing the bite off which can cause jaw pain. In this case the dentist who did the crown also adjusted that for no additional fee.
