It is clear from your symptoms that your tooth is infected as you have pain when you lie down. It is not necessary that infection is there because of decay or recent trauma. Sometimes because of previous history of trauma the pulp slowly dies over the years and gets infected and sometimes the infection is there in the tooth because of some gum problem and in that case it becomes endo perio problem. You have to schedule a visit to dentist to get clinical exam and xray done to find out the exact reason and extent of infection. The most probable treatment will be root canal treatment.
