burning pain in head behind left ear

I'm a 42-year-old female who has been having a constant burning pain behind my left ear toward the back of my skull.  The ear itself feels fine, and there is no ringing.  The head pain often pulses, then feels very hot, then goes away for a few minutes before starting up again.  It's become so uncomfortable I can't sleep well anymore. Any ideas?

hi,this could be occipital neuralgia.Once diagnosed, occipital neuralgia can be treated in several ways. These include local nerve block, peripheral nerve stimulation, steroids, rhizotomy, phenol injections, antidepressants.

This condition is mainly due to nerve irritation,please consult Neurologist to rule out other causes and examination.
