I my wisdom tooth filled a little over a week ago. My dentist used a numbing tool that beeped (i don't know what it's called). Since the treatment my gum hurts. Is this normal?

Three weeks after a deep filling i am in EXTREME pain. Instead of getting better, it's getting worse and worse. One thing I noticed after the filling was a sensitivity to heat. Is this normal? What about the procedure could be causing this much pain? How can I reduce the discomfort?
