You state you have no headaches but still complain of a throbbing discomfort in the right side of your head. I would suspect a migraine like syndrome here. The vasodilation or redness in the ears can be the red ear syndrome seen in migraine. If you haven't consulted a neurologist or headache specialist, I urge you to do so.
