you there

Thanks for providing more information.

From all the symptoms you mentioned, it seems that the source of your discomfort is coming from your sinuses. This is very common.
In our usual practice, we often see that a patient comes and complaints of a toothache, when the sinuses are the main culprit. When the top sinuses are filled with fluid from inflammation /infection, the pressure of the fluid could cause your teeth to ache.
I hope once your stuffy nose would be resolved, you would be able get relief from the toothache. I would advise you to visit an ENT specialist as soon as possible and you may need a course of antibiotics at this point
In the meanwhile, you could take advil or motrin to control the pain.
Do oral betadine antiseptic gargles and steam inhalation.
Also drink plenty of warm liquids.

I hope this helps.
