Pain due to cold is an early sign of nerve irritation. As you have been taking pain killers for this problem the problem has reached a chronic stage when even those do not help. If your tooth starts aching on its own and specially if you get up at night due to sudden tooth pain then these are the symptoms for infected tooth. it can be treated by root canal treatment which your dentist will confirm after taking your xrays. For emergency relief of pain, you can put clove in your mouth on the tooth which is hurting as it will give you temporary but instant relief. I strongly recommend you to visit your dentist and get the required treatment done.

Dentist Dr. Bibhu Dutt Nanda's  Response
hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that the kind of sensitivity you are facing is due to the nerves which are exposed , initially it was an acute condition but now it has become chronic, therefore you are experiencing pain which does not subside even after taking medication, i would recommend you to visit your dentist and get the tooth checked thoroughly, most probably root canal treatment will be the line of treatment, but confirmation will be done after looking at the x-ray of your tooth.
i wish you good health,
take care.
