I did a root canal 15days back wherein there was no swelling. Post which after 10 days I got my tooth filling done wherein the swelling and pain has risen. What could be the reasons? Am already consulting a doctor but need a second advice

Please visit your dentist to take an X Ray to rule out any secondary infection in that tooth. Post that if everything is correct the gums around the tooth should be evaluated for certain symptoms and then a conclusion can be drawn.
It could be that there is an infection in the adjacent tooth, or it may be because the gutta percha has gone beyond the apex of the tooth. In any case, we can't be sure without taking a radiograph of the tooth
Consult your dentist
Get an IOPA radiograph taken, as it is the only way to know for sure the cause behind this problem.
