sharp localised pain on left side of head above the ear ?

Tmj

You likely have tmj. A way to tell is to open and close the jaw with a finger placed in the tmj socket which is roughly the pocket created when one opens the mouth and places a finger directly in front of the ear canal right at the level of the sideburns. Softer foods, warm compresses and Motrin should help. Avoid gum chewing. Temporal arthritis is another possibility.

Twitching on left side of head above ear?

Unimportant?

Twitching
muscle twitching in a limited area unlikely to be due to any major disorder at your age stress is the likeliest cause

I have had a throbbing pain in the left side of my head above my ear and in my cheek and upper teeth. The cheek is getting worse? What could it be?

Muscle spasm

Pain
This could be a muscle spasm from clenching or grinding. Sinus pressure can also mimic tooth pain. Rule out definitive dental concerns such as cavities in teeth. If you are clenching, you may just need a mouth guard made.

My daughter (9) has a bump on the right side of head behind her ear. It is solid but goes down sometimes. Not painful are all. Any idea?

Lymph node

Head-ear
Most likely it is a lymph node. A lymph node normally will increase in size during an infection somewhere in the general area of the lymph node. For example, an enlarged lymph node behind the ear is frequently caused by an infection somewhere on the scalp (like ringworm) or by irritated or flaky skin (like seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff). If it gets painful, or red or grows, see doc.

I have an inflamation on the lower part of my right side of head & have another round hard inflamation just behind my ear which is painful.Pls explain?

Probable lymph node

Erysipelas
I'm not sure exactly where the inflammation is on your head but if it is above and/or behind the ear then the bump behind the ear is probably a lymph node enlarged because it is involved or affected area will drain toward it. Try warm compresses but if continues for more than a few days then may need antibiotics

Moderate pain right side of head above ear made worse by movement. "Headache" around right eye. Right inner ear pain. Could this all be sinus?

It could, but

Ears
But it also can be something else. You have had a CT scan of your chest. I imagine the doctor who ordered that knows a lot of your medical history. That person would be in a position to help answer your question more accurately. An ENT (ear nose throughout doctor would be ideal for sinus issues)
