In brief: Complex question

Ear pain or otalgia can be caused by a variety of diseases.
Ear infection, masticatory muscle spasm, neck pain, referred pain from the throat, or larynx are a few. Another entity associated with both ear pain and headache is inflammation of the temporal artery (temporal arteritis). Jaw joint pain can refer pain to the head. Migraine is a possibility. Lack of hearing loss rules out the ear.
