Dear fadele54066
Mastoid pain you described can happen either with ear infection or with sprain of the neck muscle. You have not mentioned about any of these. Since the treatment of these two conditions differ, you should see an ENT specialist of your area. For immediate pain relief you could use an ibuprofen 400 tablet.
