5 Year Old Waking up Crying with Headache?

My 5 year old has been waking up in the middle of the night crying saying she was dizzy, and had a head ache.  She showed me the spot at which it hurts and points to right in front of her ear like on her jaw.  She tells me she doesn't have an ear ache though.  Does any one have any idea what could be causing this, it just started 2 days ago and happened both nights. She calls it the ear headache  We have an appointment set up but I would love some advice
