Ear clicking and pain beneath my ears

Thanks for query,
You might have got following,
There may be lax ligament of temporo mandibular joint rsulting slight loosening of the joint causing clicking sound while movement at the joint.
For that you do not worry,avoid chewing hard stuff,do not open mouth wide open,keep your finger on the jt while yawning.
Another problem you have got that you might have acute frontal sinusitis.
Go for X-ray maxillary and frontal sinuses for sinusitis.
ok and bye.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
The clicking maybe due to a loose opening of the Eustachian tube that connects your middle ear to your throat called PATULOUS EUSTACHIAN TUBE. You may have Frontal sinusitis if the pain is very much on pressing the eyebrow. Do you have frequent nose block and cold. Please visit the ENT Doctor to get examined and treated.
