In brief: Oil of cloves

Old folk remedy: oil of cloves.
Nothing beats going to a dentist getting a diagnosis and treatment. For now take 3 advil and 2 tylenol (acetaminophen). It is a very effective pain control combo.

In brief: See the dentist

Ultimately you need to see a dentist to fix the source of the problem, otherwise the pain will keep coming back.
For a bad toothache, ice packs often help, along with otc nsaids such as ibuprofen.
