I had a deep filling May 18th and it’s now the 25th. I am having some ear pain kind of like an ear ache but not severe, what could be causing this?

In brief: Cross over pain

The ears are supplied by sensory fibers they share with your teeth.
In some cases you can have pain from those teeth that is perceived in the ear on that side. An anti-inflammatory med or cold compress over the tooth may give you some relief.
