Thanks for the information

There seems to be an acute infection in the oral cavity which is giving you these symptoms. This infection can be in the gums,teeth or in the throat. I would suggest that you do take Ibuprofen to help relieve the pain and Acetaminophen for pain. You will need a prescription of antibiotic to get rid of the infection and for this you need to visit your GP. Fever with pain is usually a sign of infection. If there is no fever than a possibility of temporo mandibular joint pain should also be considered.

Good luck
