Kicked on head behind ear. Ear ache, pain in jaws on yawning. Due to mild concussion?

hi I was kicked in the head almost a week ago, on the right side right behind my ear. I don t remember if I blacked out or not I don t think I did, but now I keep getting an earache in my right ear and my jaw hurts when I yawn. I went to the hospital after it happened and the didn t even look at it just said it could be a mild concussion . could there be something more going on?

It seems that you might be having some ligament or muscle injury of TM joint giving rise to this problem.
Take some anti-inflammatory medicines for 2-3 days.
Do not open your mouth wide open.
Keep your fingers on the joint while yawning.
Avoid chewing hard things.
Ok and take care.
