Numbness in left ear, triggered on running. No family history of nerve diseases. Cure?

Hi, I have been feeling numbness in my left ear for some time now. It comes and goes but it is usually triggered when I run (not running in extreme weather) and ends a while after. The feeling is in the outer left ear only. I do not suffer from any diseases and there is no family history of nerve diseases either. I have not been in an accident that could have caused wip-lash to my spine . Do you have any idea what can cause this sensation?
