In brief: Infection

This is most likely inflammation of a lymph node as a result of an infection nearby, such as in the teeth sinuses or tonsils.
It is not typical for true muscular neck pain to be associated with ear pain, but tonsillitis, simusitis or dental disease can. Please see an ENT for proper evaluation.
