I have tooth sensitivity after a filling. Is it normal?

It can be but usually only a few days especially if it is a large filling. If it continues for more than a week, see your dentist. You may have some nerve damage to the nerve in the tooth. He may have to take out the filling and place a sedative filling to calm the nerve down.
Routine sensitivity that lasts for a few days is normal. When it is longer than that consult your dentist for further care including adjusting the bite, or other treatment which requires proper diagnosis.
If there was deep decay it is not unusual and should go away in about 2 weeks.
U should discuss with the dentist who did as it depends on how deep the cavity was thanks
