Call your dentist: Pain after a cavity is filled shouldn't be severe. There might be some gum irritation for a day or two that would probably respond to over the counter Ibuprofen or a mild narcotic such as tramadol or low dose vicodin. If the pain is severe you should call your dentist and get back for another examination.
