Muscle spam: This sounds like a muscle spasm of the temporalis muscle. The muscle above the ear. I would eat soft foods and use worm compresses to the area to see if you can settle the area down. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin may help as well. Good luck.

For the past week I've had contraction type headaches above and behind left ear and temple area and my left eye sometimes hurts, comes and goes. ENT said could be jaw related or allergies. Any suggestions? Had a CT Angio a year ago and it was fine.

One side head pain: These could be migraine headaches. Migraines have pain on one side of the head, nausea or vomiting and sensitivity to light. Migraine headaches are usually severe. This is also a common area to get tension headaches or muscle headaches. I usually start my patients on over the counter medications for these headaches. Check with your doctor if you can take medications such as ibuprofen or Tylenol.
