In brief: Decay or other
Decay can lead to sense from hot/cold but you can have decay and not have the sense as well.
Another possibility is you may have a necrotic (dead) tooth that is causing inflammatoin and pain is derived from the bone. Tooth would need a root canal if that were the case. See your dentist for care.

Temporarily use something like tylenol (acetaminophen).
Any anti-inflammatory medication can help. Aleve, motrin, advil and even a holistic alternative arnica. Ice to minimize swelling can also be helpful. That is only managing the pain... I agree with the other doctors. Please see a dentist to help you resolve the issue which is causing you pain. Make an appointment asap please.

In brief: Caries
The tooth pain needs to be evaluated not only to for pain relief but to prevent further damage to the tooth such as from a cavity.
Sensitivity to hot and cold is usually due to periodontal disease exposing the root. Please consult your dentist, even if you can treat the pain with over the counter medications.
