My tooth has been sensitive to cold and hot foods/drinks for 8 days.

-When I touch right where the tooth meets the gum line or a little under the gum line I feel a sharp pain. If I stop touching the area for a short duration like a minute and touch again I don't feel any pain. But if I wait about 5 minutes then touch the area again then I can feel pain.
-My tooth is mostly sensitive to cold water.
-Recently I have been brushing my teeth really late at night and in the afternoon because I have been having problems sleeping due to my insomnia. I would say the average in the morning and evening is 3:30 PM. And there were a few rare occasions when I didn't brush at all after waking up because by time I woke up, it was already 5:00 PM due to my need for extra sleep. I have been following this routine for about 3 months.
-I have always brushed my teeth really hard my whole life. However I think I have been brushing much harder than usual because of my recent sleep habits. After discovering the problem with my tooth, I have changed my habits and have been sleeping at a decent time again with the use of medication.
-The tooth that hurts is the molar next to the last molar on the top left of my mouth.
-I don't see any decay but there's a possibility that I just can't see the decay.
-I do not have sinus problems.
-I only drink water and milk. Nothing else. Rarely do I drink drinks that contain sugar.
-I don't feel any pain when I bite.
-The pain only lasts for a second after contact with hot and cold.
-I don't think I have any fillings. I have had cavities before but only on my milk teeth. I haven't had cavities for twelve years.
-I recall a brief moment when a molar tooth hurt on the top right of my mouth but there is little evidence for this and I'm not even sure if it hurt in the same way. I thought it was worth mentioning though.
-None of my teeth hurt when I brush.
-It is unlikely that I hit my tooth or caused physical damage to the tooth while I was awake. If I did cause any damage it had to be done while I was asleep.
-Pain only occurs if I do something to the tooth.
-The tooth doesn't hurt when I touch it. It only hurts when I touch the gums under the tooth.
-Sometimes the tooth hurts from cold air. Not often though.
-Pain is subjective but to me the pain isn't that bad. The only time when the pain is moderate is when I touch the side of the tooth where it meets the gum line.
-My gums appear to be normal. No bumps or spots. There were times when they bled because I brushed too hard though.
-When I touch the gums under the tooth with my tongue I don't feel any pain.

Can anybody figure out what is wrong with my tooth? Thanks! I appreciate it.

Go see a Dentist who can take an x-ray and determine what is going on with your tooth. Typing up a long list of symptoms on an internet forum is not going to get you a diagnosis.

And clearly something is wrong. A fracture or pulpitis... But do go and see a dentist.

Dentista amigo. In the meantime get some sensitivity reducing toothpaste. Consider putting a dab on the tooth and let is sit for 5 minutes or so. Don't swallow. See if that attenuates the sensitivity. Consider also that cold, dry, and barometric pressure changes causes sensitivity in some people.

I can suggest you few simple tips that can really effective. First of all change your toothpaste because some toothpaste increases sensitivity. Avoid using hard brush bristled toothbrushes because they expose sensitive spots. Avoid acidic items during eating because they increase sensitivity for example lemon, orange and tomatoes and take some advice from professional dentist.

Crazy...I have this same exact problem. I had x-rays taken and my dentist just said there's a large filling that may be causing it?...

Have you had a large filling in the tooth? Could be sinus related as well even if you don't know it...
