Sounds like it got infected. Do a walk-in at a dentist's office in the morning. They'll probably X-ray and confirm infection, then write a prescription for antibiotics. Take the antibiotics (couple hours to kick in) and keep the follow-up appointment.
In the meantime, cold water can numb the pain, but it only works on a timescale of seconds. Aspirin is ineffective.
By the way. Yeah. You know what you had or didn't have money for, and you have some idea of what you can and cannot do. You'd better revise that outlook by the time places start opening up in the morning, because the present issue was A). Preventable and ultimately less costly, and B). Not going to just go away now that it has developed beyond the preventable stage.
I've been there twice. Sucks.
