Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There is a common nerve which supplies the tonsil and the ear which is why you have ear pain if the tonsil is injured. You need to show to an ENT Doctor who will look for damage and treat it as you could be having one sided tonsillitis due to trauma. Drink warm liquids, eat warm, soft food till then.
