In brief: Endodontic treatment

is warranted.
Tingling, throbbing, dull pain spreading through gums is a sign of the abscess that increases in pain severity when the area is stimulated.See your dentist fo evaluation and root canal treatment.

In brief: It can be serious

See the dentist that placed your temporary filling.
One of the reasons to place a tempory filling is to evaluate the health of the nerve of the tooth. Your symptoms indicate the tooth is not healthy and further assessment is needed to determine the best treatment at this point. You could be looking at root canal, crown or possible extraction. See your dentist ASAP.
