It would be better if a re examination is done. It could be adjacent tooth or another area on the same tooth. If so that would be considered as a new filling.
If there is still a doubt an IOPA X ray of the same would reveal more info.
The problem could be due to filling which is gone very deep touching the underlying nerve tissues so it's causing pain ! If you got the light cure tooth filling done then probably your problem would be solved after removing the filling material followed by Root canal treatment. ..
