It could be referred pain from one of your teeth due to trauma or an infection. Referred pain is when you perceive pain in a certain part of your body, but the actual site of tissue injury is somewhere else. For example, people that have peritonitis (i.e. swollen membrane in the abdominal cavity) often feel pain in their shoulder blade!
