Upper Teeth Ache

For over a month, I have encountered an ache in the upper teeth area on one side of my face. I have had x rays from the dentist which show no evidence of root canal problems although there are a couple of cavities which may need to be filled. The main problem in diagnosis is that the pain/ache is not located on a single tooth - the dentist tapped all of my top teeth on that side and none of these taps caused a shooting pain on a single tooth.

On the same side of the mouth but on the lower side, one molar tooth is heavily filled and will probably require a crown at some point. However, x-rays of all my teeth shown no obvious signs of root canal problems.

I had the same issues about 18 months ago, which lasted for 6 months before disappearing again, but have now reappeared 5-6 weeks back.

I have done some research, and it could be maxillary sinitus but I'm unconvinced. I'm quite susceptible to colds but haven't had one for 2 months. It could also be down to the gridining of teeth but I'm also unconvinced.

In addition, I have also had problems with shortness of breath, suffering tightness from the throat down to the chest area. I am asthmatic but I'm pretty confident it is unrelated to my asthma. Again this occured from about 2 years ago until about a year ago, but has reappeared in the last few weeks.

I'm under a fair bit of stress at the moment, but I'm sceptical this can be the cause of all of this.

Please help....
