I can't find any dentist that will open up on a Sunday morning. This is driving my crazy.

Call NHS direct and they'll put you in touch with your nearest Dentist. It's an emergency and will be treated as such because, left un treated, it can turn in to septicemia which is exactly what happened to me a couple of months back.
I cracked my tooth on a Friday afternoon, by Saturday 7AM i was like you are now, just waiting to die. By Saturday PM my face was like a Football. Problem with me was it was a bank holiday weekend, i honestly thought i was going to die.
In the end my girlfriend phoned NHS direct who put me through to my local emergency dentist who saw me within an hour of the phone call. Most emergency dentists are on call and will either come out to your local dentist and/or hospital.
In the mean time, take co-codamol and ibuprofen together in the highest dose you're allowed (to be fair i used to go out with a Pharmacist and she told me those doses are still way below the tolerance of most adults so use that information how you see fit, i'm certainly not going to tell you to take more . See if you can get an anti-swelling agent from anywhere as this is what causes to the nerve to react so badly.
If the worst comes to the worst and an abscess forms, grab a needle and boil it up in the kettle to sterilize it then take a nice big swig of whisky or another high alcohol spirit, hold it in your mouth around the abcess/infected area, swallow it, pray to heaven and pop the abscess. Instant relief for me.

You'll just have to pay the bill off. Don't **** around waiting for your teeth to fix themselves, they wont. It only gets more expensive the longer you leave it. Not to mention tooth infections can be extremely dangerous, and are well known to cause damage to the heart if left unchecked.

If I'm reading this right, your max cost under NHS is £209...
I'd think you should probably contact the NHS for immediate advice and treatment imo (not over-the-counter remedies).

You can afford Internet but not NHS dentists? Seems like your priorities are all wrong. I'm guessing you have a TV License too?!
