In brief: Depends
The most likely possibilities are an ear infection or TMJ (temperomandibular joint syndrome).
Check with your doctor to further evaluate it if your symptoms persist. Would check sooner than later if any fevers or hearing loss. Also if you are on medication for osteoporosis it would be important to get checked soon.
