Hi., it seems the decay has reached deeper I.e.  to the area where nerves are located or the existing filling is impinging on the nerves that is why the pain has started. Advice you to visit a dentist and get X ray done. The tooth may need Rct treatment.

Hi With the information provided by you, I feel the decay has reached deep and may require RCT. Please get a Xray done so that we'll get to know whether the decay has gone beyond the filling. Regards
