Take some ibuprofen or another type of store bought pain reliever and rinse with warm salt water. Take the pain reliever every 4 hours or as directed on the bottle. Don't wait for the pain to come back before taking more, take it before it starts to hurt, hat will make it easier to keep the pain away. And also rinse with warm salt water through out the day as often as you are able to. This should help some, but you probably have an infection in your tooth and need to get into a dentist right away. It will most likely just get worse and worse.
