Need direction re pain above tooth having had RC

I had a RC (upper central incisor) done in the early 80s and have recently (last 15 years) experienced pain when eating/drinking hot liquids. I avoided them and the symptoms largely vanished. However, more recently (last 2 years), I have pain on palpation extending upwards into the opening of my nose and the tooth feels less secure. I am wondering if I need a RC retreatment or an apico. Can you help with the rough diagnosis and tell me what you think I should be doing at this time? Thanks in advance.
