I started having pain in what I thought was a molar on my lower jaw on the lft side. It began to spread over time to the front bottom of my jaw, affecting my jawbone, facial bone, eardrums, forehead. Now, I am in excrutiating pain! What should I do? I know its Labor day weekend and Im probably stuck but please help me with some kind of answer.

Looks like you have an impacted or a carious tooth out there. You should shortly consult your dentist and take a xray to find out whats bothering you. In case of severe pain you can get a OTC painkiller to subside your painful episodes. Use warm water with salt to gargle.
