Experienced an immediate sharp pain behind his left ear resulting in a constant headache

Three weeks ago my 82 year old husband was a passenger in a car. The driver pointed to something and my husband quickly turned his head to his left and experienced an immediate sharp pain behind his left ear resulting in a constant headache and a feeling of numbness over the left side of his skull. Could this be a heart attack or headache whiplash? It does not seem to be improving.

Hi Welcome to HealthCareMagic

This is not Heart Attack. It could be muscle spasm.If there is injury , get MRI of the neck.
