random ache on right side of head, couple inches above ear. inside ear feels a tad stuffy , slight ache too. ( have sinus infection ) what's the ache?

Headache: Probably secondary to the sinus infection which causes inflammation and perhaps a blocked sinus. It should clear up after the infection has resolved. See you primary care if it doesn't resolve in a week or two, or gets worse, or you have persistent fevers. Hope this helps!
