Crown Pain: I had a crown done a month ago on a lower back molar by my dentist. (I did not have a root canal)

It was great until the past few days. I started experiencing some pain and almost a throbbing sensation. Definitely a little sensitive.

If your dentist is unable to diagnose this possibility, get a consult with a Prosthodontist, who are considered to be the "masters" of the adult bite.
