It would be good to get it checked, not a doctor, even if nothing wrong there is peace of mind. Chances are it will heal but you need to get it checked out.

You should definitely go to the GP ASAP and really you should have gone at the time of the accident- but too late now. It is possible to fracture the 2 bony spurs at the top of the mandible and have similar symptoms to yours, especially since that part of your face took a nasty blow.

10 days ago I went sailing in a dinghy with some kids at a sailing club i volunteer at. We accidentally gybed and I got smacked very hard in the left temple by the boom. Seeing stars, dizzy etc. Swelling appeared, headache for a few days, sore side of head and jaw.

Most symptoms are gone, but it still moderately hurts my jaw and the impact site when I open my jaw fully and when chewing food.

Do you think it will subside or is there some kind of damage? It doesn’t feel like enough of a thing to take up a gp appointment.
