You all know why I'm here, so I'll skip that part (no money, no insurance). I've tried several suggestions mentioned here and none have worked for me. I have tried salt water, peroxide, Vodka, ice on the hand between your thumb and finger, vanilla, lime juice, tea bags, Orajel, Advil, Aleve, and Aspirin all at the same time and nothing worked. I still felt like my head was going to explode. I haven't slept more than four hours total in two days. I'm desperate to sleep tonight so I had a glass of wine, now I'm up to four glasses and no pain. I don't know if the alcohol killed the toothache (infection) or I just don't feel it anymore but I don't care, but hopefully I'll get a good nights sleep. I know it's not an option for everybody, but if all else fails get drunk and get some sleep.

Alcohol is a an anesthetic, same class as the Novocaine used at the dentist. That's why your tooth ache goes away just when you're tipsy. Be aware: Alcohol can also reduce the effectiveness of the anesthetics; i.e. you have an appointment to fix the damn tooth in a few days, I wouldn't recommend drinking the pain away as it may result in you need more than one shot to the gums to deaden your nerves.
