Occasional sharp pains in right ear, shooting pains in head, tender spot on head, painless lumps on jaw line. Any ideas?

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

Hello,

Welcome to healthcaremagic forum.

The lump at the jaw may be caused due to abscess developed due to deep caries/periodontal infection/impacted wisdom tooth.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical as well as x-ray evaluation done.

Impacted teeth has to be either extracted or retained depending on severity of lesion.

Take augmentin along with analgesics.

If symptoms persists,please do visit an ENT specialist too.

Hope this helps.
