Although it is impossible to say what is going on without an examination, this  is an atypical post-injection history and requires further investigation.  This may represent a peri-injection hematoma, seroma, or infection.  Pain in your ear is not likely to be related, although it can be associated with TMJ, or another source of referred pain.
