Detailed Answer:
Hii. Welcome to the healthcare services. It seems that you may have temporomandibular joint arthritis. You need to consult an ent surgeon. Get a complete ent check up. Ear related problems like otitis externa can cause similar ear pain. But I think you are having TM joint arthritis. You can take paracetamol for pain. Take hot fomentation in front of ear. Don't make too much jaw movement. You can take one course of antibiotic augmentin to reduce the inflammation. Please consult a dental surgeon to see if there is any dental problems. Follow the advice and review if you have any queries.
