Dentist has checked everything and there are no issues. I haven’t for around a year (no reason why) eaten on the left side, only the right. I’ve started eating back on the left and it’s very sensitive when I do, upper and lower. Is this something that will go the more I use the left side again and build that strength back up?

Do you have any photos or xrays of your teeth?
Sensitivity could be due to a range of reasons, therefore "sensitivity on one side" is actually very vague.
You could maybe have recession around your teeth, or you could have areas of exposes dentine due to tooth wear.
More information is needed in order to give an opinion on a case like this
