In brief: Ear symptoms

If there are no other signs or symptoms to suggest ear pathology, I suspect some irritability of superficial nerves in that region.
The cause would be obscure but at this time I recommend simple observation as long as an otolaryngologist has evaluated you and sees no other problem. Most of these types of problems will resolve.
