Right Ear Pain

I have a off and on pain in my outer right ear. Feels like it is where my ear connects to my head, not down in the ear drum area. It is sort of a lighting bolt slow nerve throbbing pain. Each throb last about 1 second. It does not match my heart beat. It comes and goes. I think I can bring it on by turning my neck in a certain direction. What could be causing this? and is this something I need to be concerned about. Been going on for 2-3 days.

Sorry, but a diagnosis or medical advice is against the rules and impossible in all WebMD communities. You need to see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.
