A number of things: Throbbing pain behind the ear with activity could be due to clenching your teeth, negative pressure behind your ear, or muscle spasm. A good ear exam by an ENT may help, but start by considering if you are grinding or clenching your teeth during whatever activity causes the problem.

Possible TMJ: It is possible you are positioning your jaw such that the jaw joints case discomfort behind your ear(s).
