Hi. Usually when there is an acute infection in the tooth it shows like this - severe pain relieved by pain killers for the duration of their action only. Pain killers and antibiotics will make you comfortable in a couple of days, but it is likely the infection will flare up again. If you want faster relief and a permanent solution for the problem, get the root canal treatment started as advised.
