Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms.

Tongue bite is common with seizures, especially of the grand mal type. However, ear pain is not common. So, you should get examined by an ENT doctor to exclude any ear related infection.

As of now, you can take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
