In brief: See your dentist

If it is sudden then you may be developing a gingivla abcess, but more likely it is as simple as the need for a good cleaning.
Get an appointment and take care of it. Until then keep it cleaned out even if it hurts to do it.

This sounds like an infection, gingivitis, or other periodontal disease.

This could be a sign of gum disease or trauma from food and eating.
