Pinpointing pain

Some 4 months back I had a molar extracted and then had to get some roots removed by a Specialist. This was some 14 weeks ago (since the Specialist) and apparently quite an awkward operation. I experienced quite a lot of mild pain in the weeks following though some days there would be little. Advice from my dentist and online dentists were that it could be up to 20 weeks I would be experiencing twinges.
The adjacent molar (LR7) is heavily filled. Ive also had recent problems with other heavily filled molars with my dentist thinks have cracks inside. Ive had more dental problems in last 4 months than previous 40 years.
Now, I getting more worried, if what I might be feeling is mild pain from the adjacent molar. It is very difficult to pinpoint. The mild twinges of pain seem to have become more regular in recent days.

I visited my dentist some 12 days ago and he xrayed the extraction site and said there was no root left and it had healed well. He made no comment about the adjacent molar and I hadnt thought of the possibility of it being from there.

How is it possible to pinpoint where the pain is coming from?

How was the roots extracted? I had a tooth that fell out because of decay. The roots need to be extracted.

The molar was extracted by my NHS dentist but she left a couple of roots. I was referred to a private specialist dentist who removed the two remaining roots without problem.
