How long has it been? Mine didn't hurt because the nerves are dead.

Because your dentist had been poking around in there with tiny files to get the nerve out. It will be sore for several days most likely. He should have given you at least ibuprofen for that.

Because it's trauma to your mouth. It should feel like a bruise for several days after the procedure.

Because they just took a drill to your mouth and it takes time to heal.

Your mouth had trauma to it. A lot of drilling and scraping. Then they killed the nerves yes but the surrounding tissue has to heal. If it hurts in a few days call the dentist back.

If you're that concerned over it why not consult your dentist?

Same day? Of course it still hurts. They were prodding in your mouth plus the pain left from the injection needle.
