Sometimes when i drink water or any liquid i get a sharp pain behind my ears sort of by my jaw. It only happens when liquids or tongue touch my gums?

In brief: The tooth

Gums usually don't respond to temperature as much as the tooth does.
It sounds a lot like you have some root sensitivity. Please see your dentist.
