I feel everyone's pain. I recently broke one of my wisdom teeth and had an exposed nerve. Let me tell you this is the worst pain for many people because it will not let up. Well the only thing that would work for me was ice cold water. It would take the pain away temporarily. I would swoosh it around in my mouth and spit it out when the pain would start again and repeat. It is a temporary fix and takes the edge off. I was like this for 2 days without rest and finally had to go to ER and the numbed my infected wisdom tooth with something injected with a needle. The pain was gone for about 8 hours but I finally got some sleep. The next morning went to the Dentist did ex rays and showed I needed my impacted wisdom tooth removed with the molar. I proceed to the oral surgeon and thought I was going to get my teeth taken out that day to the disappointment of a next day oral surgery. I begged him for some relief and He numbed my teeth with a needle and wiggled it around to try and take pressure off the nerve, it worked plus He gave a prescription for oxycodone it worked. Went back the next day and had them removed while awake. The pain having them removed is minimal and now I'm thankful there out. Both the Dentist and Oral Surgeon saw me with the ice cold water and told me that is one of the only things that takes the pain away for a very short period of time. It sucks swishing cold water in your mouth but takes the terrible pain away. The only real remedy is to have tooth removed to solve the problem. I hope this helps someone out there because I felt your pain.
