5 days ago my wisdom tooth was extracted without complications. The radiography showed all teeth being in good conditions. However, the tooth next to the one that was extracted hurts whenever I apply pressure on it. Is this normal? What could it be?

Thanks in advanced.

Could be a condition called Dry Socket which is common after dental surgery & its very painful. Usually with a bad taste in your mouth. Needs treatment urgently. Don't try to brave it out!!
