Can tinnitus make your ears hurt and give you a headache? And can tinnitus switch ears ?

Yes. and it depends: Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a symptom, and not usually a disease. Add eye pain and headache, and you have 3 symptoms. The most common cause of ear, eye, and head pain is sinus related, such as a virus or allergies. The fact that the tinnitus switches sides fortifies this notion.
