Throbbing H/A on LHS: There are multiple causes of headaches. Migraine headaches are frequently described as pulsatile (beating with your pulse), frequently on one side of the head at a time, either left or right side, frequently with GI upset. You can check any of several good websites to learn more: www.mayoclinic.com or www.johnshopkins.com or make a virtual consult,

Hard to say: Pain behind the ear could be a sign of ear infection, but could also represent musculoskeletal pain. Should see pcp or ENT for evaluation.
