Ouch!: So sorry about the tooth pain. I know how it feels. Please get something stronger from an urgent care clinic. Try keeping a clove near your gum.

Go to the ER: If nothing is working you may want to visit the er, the doctors can give you a prescription for a stronger pain killer and if you are having an infection they can prescribe you some antibiotics. If you have a regular dentist call his emergency number he may be able to help you. Don't put it off any longer.

Antibiotics: You have a developing tooth abscess. Antibiotics are needed and a dental procedure will be needed now or later. Not much is going to relieve this pain, except the proper medication (antibiotics and prescription pain medication).

Need help: There is only so much you can do for yourself. You most likely have an abscessed tooth. If you have a dentist, call him up for an antibiotic. Controlling the infection will knock the pain down. If not see urgent care or er, for medication until dentist can be seen. Do not hesitate.
