What is the cause of soreness and tenderness behind the ears post a sinus infection ?

Hello, the area directly behind both of my ears is sore and tender to touch. This seems to happen whenever I am getting a sinus infect ( I have alot of sinus issues in my life). Could this be lymph pain or something more like mastoiditis? I am a 36 yo female. thanks.
