Pain in left ear,lock jaw,inner ear infection.

I have been experiencing pains below my left ear. Went to the doc who prescribed an antibiotic which helped and now the pains have started up again? I am 67 Years old and as a youngster my jaw used to sometimes lock? On my visit to the doc he did say I had a deep inner ear infection but now I am wondering why the pains are back again. Thanks in anticipation.
