In brief: Call your dentist

Your dentist will determine the cause of your pain and the treatment necessary to solve your problem. Take otc pain meds until you can get an appointment.

In brief: Periodontal disease

It sounds like that you have periodontal disease.
It could be plain gingivitis (early stage) or periodontitis (advanced stage). I suggest you see your dentist to decide if you need deep cleaning (scaling or root planing).
