Dental Advice needed

I feel a bit silly asking this, as I work for a dentist, but I don't want to tell them at work as I'd much rather go to my own dentist on Thursday!

Basically I am having pain in my top wisdom tooth when I bite on anything hard, it's really sore at the time and for a while afterwards. There isn't any pain any other time and it isn't sensitive to hot/cold or anything else.

Does this sound like I have cracked my tooth? I am hoping not as I don't really want to get a crown and I know the cost of them all too well!!!

you could have an abscess - not a dentist just a sufferer btw

Yes thats possible too, although I thought that would be much sorer and not only when I bit anything hard...suppose it could get worse though sad

Just to bump this on the off-chance a dentist comes along, I will add that the tooth is otherwise not tender to palpation, except for biting on hard things!!
