Pain near ear

I'm having pain near my left ear, specifically in the area between jaw and tragus. I had this a few months back, but eventually it was gone. But now, it has started again. When I bite something, the pain increases. I hope someone could help me get a solution for this.

you might be suffering from temporo mandibular joint dysfunction. usually its caused by dental related problems. it can be treated by antiinflammatory drugs and avoiding hard food for couple of weeks. if your symptoms persist then you may need to get intra articular steroid injection. consult nearby ENT specialist or maxillofacial surgeon
