Does anxiety cause headaches and ear pain or are these pains a symptom of some other underlying illness ?

I am 24 years old I weigh 176lbs and I am 5 0 in height. For quite some time I have been experiencing aches in my right side of the head , above my ears plus my right jaw and time to time my ears ache at night. I do have high anxiety . But I am not sure if its a symptom from anxiety or it is something else.

Sharp shooting pain on one side of face can be due to trigeminal neuralgia. Ear related problems can also cause such one sided pains. Aches and pains are very common in anxiety also, but they are non speicific and cannot be medically explained. Therefore consult your family doctor, who after intial evaluation, can refer you to appropriate specialist.
