Ear Pain from Safe Level Noise -- Please Explain

I have been dealing with this painful sensation that seems to come after being exposed to sound for a short while. My ears start to throb and sometimes my neck and the back of my head ache as well.

I most recently experienced this phenomenon after playing an Xbox video game for about 30 minutes. I had the volume on my TV at around 10. For a frame of reference, when I watch cable programming on the same TV, I have to put the volume up to at least 15 just for it to be barely audible. Nobody would call the sounds loud. I know what it's like to be exposed to intense volumes and my ears haven't felt like that.

Please help!!!
