Severe behind the ear pain

I am experiencing behind the ear pain where even when I put on my glasses it causes a headach causing me to take my glasses off and then back on again throughout the day.  It also appears there is some swelling in that area as if the glasses are creating pain and feels like a tightness around my head in the area where glasses are worn.  I noticed that the pain starts usually when I put on my glasses and releases some refief when glasses are taken off.  It appears to be getting more and more painful.  I am just not sure what doctor to see.  My primary care doctor does not appear to know how to handle this issue, other than to issue a MRI.  I have no non diseases like diabetes at this time.  What do you suggest?agpthe

did you get new glasses, Allergies. is there a welt or cyst behind your ear? either of these could do it. or it could be neuritis of a specific nerve in that region.

From experince I had those same feelings, I went to see my eye dr and the glasses were to tight and then were loosen, and I was sufferening from an inner ear infection from the pressure.

I get exactly the same thing, and it turned out to be sinus pressure!  I am not congested and don't have any other symptoms; when I get a "sinus Headache", it is almost behind (and above) the ear where my glasses rest.  I take sudafed and it gets much better.  I send you good luck finding out what's causing your pain...
