I have multi nodular goiter, over the past 2 days i've had a stabbing pain in left ear along with pain in the left side of my throat. Is it related?

In brief: Not likely

You probably have a throat irritation(like reflux) or infection(pharyngitis).
There is a nerve in your throat which has branches in the ear. When that nerve in your throat is inflamed you can get ear pain. Multi modular goitered are rarely the cause of such complaints and one should look elsewhere for the cause of these symptoms.
