Yes, this could definitely be related to a tooth problem, ear problem, neck or shoulder strain or other problems in that area. Often there is what we call referred pain, where the entire area affected bu a certain nerve can hurt from something being wrong with one part of the area.
If the gums feel tender and you feel like it is a tooth problem you should get checked out by the dentist and have an examination done to determine if that is the problem. You can also use medications such as Tylenol (if no liver problem) or Ibuprofen (or Aleve)(if no kidney probelms), do gentle stretches and apply heat to the muscles that seem sore.
