Many causes: This could be an ear infection, mastoiditis, pinched nerve, shingles or other causes. You will need to see a doctor to determine what is causing this. If pain is severe or you have fever, stiff neck, vomiting, numbness or weakness, or other worrisome symptoms, see a doctor today. Good luck!
