muscle spasm under jaw, left side

Every once and a while I get a muscle spasm, for lack of a better word, under my jaw on the left side. At the moment its "flexing", on occasion it will completely go hard for 5-10 seconds. It's not painful but itís worrisome. I asked my ENT about this and he didn't think anything was wrong, though it wasnít doing it at that time. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my ear, left specifically as it usually happens when I'm having issues with my ear. I have Eustachian tube dysfunction and have a tube inserted in my left ear drum, at the moment I think itís either clogged or fallen out as I have severe Vertigo. Of course this is all self-diagnosing, so I very well could be completely wrong.

Anyone else have this muscle spasm thing? Anyone know what it could be and how I can stop it?

Thank you!
