Could an earache cause severe neck pain?

In brief: Not likely

I'm a spine specialist, not an ENT doctor, but i've never run across any data to show that an ear problem can cause any severe neck pain.
On the flip side, problems in the neck can cause pain to be felt around the ear. I'd suggest seeing an ENT doctor in your area to evaluate the ear. If normal, then find yourself a spine specialist.
