The gums around my teeth, that have a cavity in them hurt very badly. I have taken Ibuprofen, Tylenol and nothing seems to touch the pain.

Some home remedies are to put an asprin on the tooth/cavity or use clove oil. I can attest to the fact that clove oil did help me though it tastes just like you would expect it to taste. You also may want to try Oragel Extra Strength OTC at the drug store. Walmart may even carry it, matter of fact I think they do. You may find it either in the toothpaste aisle for adults or in the baby aisles somewhere. If it can make a teething baby stop crying it might just offer you enough comfort to make it through 8 hrs of sleep.
I know this is old but I have a guaranteed way to stop the pain.
Years ago I had the worse pain I ever felt. My tooth pain and inflammation was so severe that I could only consume room temperature liquids.
A friend of mine handed me something and said "try this"
I took the "POWDERY WHITE SUBSTANCE" just a tiny grain of rice sized piece and rubbed it on my gumbs right where the pain was.
It tasted awful, but I swear the pain went from 100 to zero in about 60 seconds.
I was so relieved of the pain that my eyes started to tear--I almost cried that's how fast it worked and wasn't suffering anymore.
I then took some some antibiotics so the inflammation and swelling went down.
The thing is, I only had to do it once.
I highly recommend you find your friendly neighborhood "pharmacist" at get the lowest amount he'll sell you. $20 - $30 but you only need a grain of rice sized bit.
Just wet the tip of your finger on your tounge and just a tiny dab will do.
Truth is I tried a MILLION Remedies and medicines today nothing can help a bad toothache, I have taken a hydrocodone 7.5 and 2 perkaset 10's today nothings helped it I gargled with warm salt water and I have tried proxide and alcohol. I have tried mouthwash . and mouthwash for sores. orajel !! should I keep goin? GO TO THE DENTIST IF POSSIBLE. Like I am
Try rubbing Vicks vapor rub on your face where the nerve endings are along the jawline. I read that this takes away the pain instantly. Also gargle with Listerine and hold it in your mouth where the pain is and then spit it out... This provides temporary relief. I hope this helps
