Why is the muscle in my head above my right ear twitching?

Stress,caffeine

Caffeine
An isolated twitch of a muscle is called myokymia. It may be caused by stress, fatigue, or excess consumption of caffeine, or caffeine like compounds called xanthines found in tea, cocoa, and chocolate. It's usually not dangerous if it's isolated to just one muscle.

Head throbs,the top feels swollen.Body muscles twitch.Ears hurt at times.I can smell burning inside my nose.I spend a lot of time on the phone.cause?

Seizure

Muscle
Smelling burning is sometimes due to aura from seizures. Not all seizures come with body shaking. You may consider seeing a neurologist, especially if these symptoms are new. Phone has nothing to do with it.

I've been getting a stabbing pain in my head above my right ear and I'm having trouble with the bottom left side of my vision which has lasted 15 mins?

Quadrantanopsia

Vision
The visual system decussates in the optic chiasm, into right and left visual fields from the right and left eyes. Further reorganization occurs in the lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus. A visual field defect of the inferior left quadrant with severe headache pain on the right localizes at or near the right occipital lobe. An emergency CT and/or MRI is indicated. See a doctor ASAP please.

I've got throbbing, stabbing head pain above my right ear. help, please!?

Possible TMJ

Open-uri20140331-16206-pd01i
Since the pain is near your ear, which is also where your TMJ is, you may be experiencing TMJ dysfunction. A full exam by a dentist with TMD expertise would give you some answers. Not all dentists are experienced in this area so seek out the right dentist. Another possibility would be to see and ENT. Depending on what other symptoms you have, the dentist would probably be the first choice.
