I am in my 20's and for the past few years I have had stabbing pain in my ears when I jog. I used to think it was because I was out of shape, and then came to realize that having stabbing pain in your ears is not normal.

I get the pain every time I get my heart rate going and then suddenly stop. So for example, I am running for 5 minutes, then suddenly stop to tie my shoelace. Or I'm running for 20 minutes, and I get to my front doorstep and go inside, instant stabbing pain in both ears that lasts for about 5-10 minutes and then just goes away. Even if I cool down slowly, I still getting the stabbing pain, only its slightly less in severity. I have had tmj problems in the past, but I don't think that is it. What would make such severe pain only when I'm getting my heart rate up like that?
