pain months after wisdom tooth removal?

I got my bottom right wisdom tooth removed 3 months ago. I woke up a few days ago, and after brushing my teeth, I noticed a small sharp bone starting to stick out of my gum. I frantically googled this and it said it was normal and it will come out by itself. About 5 days later(today) it started hurting from the middle of my cheek to my ear and it feels puffy, but it doesn't look puffy. It hurts when I eat or drink or talk a lot from the movement of the jaw. Is this normal when the little bone is coming out? I don't have much money and need to know whether to go to the oral surgeon or not.
