Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Wisdom teeth do cause excruiating pain while erupting. When the molar teeth do not have enough space to come out they are called as impacted ones and are quite painful. According to the description provided by you it seems that you might be suffering from impacted tooth but it requires a physical examination and X ray of the tooth to comment regarding the exact cause.

Painful impacted tooth are usually surgically removed or extracted. Kindly visit your Dentist so that you can be guided accordingly.

Take care!
