In brief: Impacted tooth

We could guess as to the cause of your problem or you could see a dentist to know for sure.
I think the second choice is a better one. May be related to an impacted wisdom tooth or a number of other issues as TMJ and ear infection. Can be all related or separate issues.

In brief: See your Dentist

You might be teething.
The wisdom tooth may be trying to erupt, may be infected, may be damaging bone/gums. See your Dentist to determine cause of pain and treatment choices.

In brief: Impacted wisdomtooth

A trip to dentist will help determine if you have impacted wisdom tooth giving you trouble and need to be extracted by an oral surgeon.
It probably is infected and needs to be treated first with antibiotic and pain killer.
