Ear Muscle Spams or Tinnitus?

I experience the "thumping" noise in one of my ears. It is not related to blood pressure....and the rhythm is not parallel to my heart beat. It does it a few times sporadically and then leaves lasting a total of a few seconds.

Well, today I experienced something that actually sent me into somewhat of a panic attack b/c I had never experienced it before. Now that I look back it happened so quick, but b/c it was new I kinda went into the fight/flight mode.

Long story sort, my ear started making the thumping noise for about a total of 3-4 seconds...but the strange thing is, it was like a super fast thump (like a basket ball dribbling really fast). Again, it did not last long, but I had never had it happen so fast. Now it is about 30 minutes later and my ear and jaw are vaguely hurting in that area.

Is their a difference between an ear muscle spasm and tinnitus?
