Neck problem or tooth?

I have been having a tooth ache and neck kink, one always accompanies the other. It started with the tooth but know it is my neck that starts first. The pain in my neck is at the base of my skull on the right side, the pain in my tooth is a top molar, third from the back. I have looked at the tooth and find nothing like a cavity or anything suggesting a problem there. The pain only comes at night before bed.

The last week or so I found that a good hot shower on my neck takes the pain away, as does a heat pad and standing on my feet.

Money is tight and I do not have the money to got to both a dentist and chiropractor. Could it be a pinched nerve in my neck that causes the tooth ache, or a tooth problem causing the neck pain?
