I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled Thursday. I have an earache and headache on one side of my head. My jaw is a little sore as well. Is this normal?

In brief: Yes

The ear pain may be referred pain from your surgical site, along with the headache a result of the inflammation.
Take your medicine and follow your Oral surgeons directions. If it gets worse contact your surgeon.
