Visit your dentist: You may have gingivitis or gum disease. Recommend you avoid those foods that cause you pain. Use sensitive toothpaste twice daily. Try rinsing your mouth out with lukewarm salt water after your eat. Recommend you get evaluated by your dentist.

Painful Gingiva: If it's been more than six months since your last dental check-up, it's time to make an appointment.

See a dentist ASAP: These symptoms are all a signs of gum disease. And excruciating pain can indicate a deep infection. A dental visit with xrays is definitely in order, regular visits with a hygienist and an intensive home cleaning program can really reduce and our suffering and prevent progression. Sorry you are suffering

Sensitivity: What you presented are all signs of gum disease resulting in gum recession and root exposure. Please see your Dentist to evaluate and treat. There are both professional treatments and OTC adjuncts that can help, so see your Dentist for guidance.
