In brief: Sinusitis can do it

When the sinuses are inflamed, they can cause different things to occur: headache, plugged ears, stuffed nose, feeling like your teeth hurt.
So yes, if the maxillary sinuses are inflamed, it could feel like it's near the ears, or inside the ears. If you're experiencing a high level of discomfort, see your doctor, so they can do a full head, ears, eyes, nose, throat examination, and give you more information about this.
