Strong pressure on head temples

Me and my partner had a fight last night, he put his hands around my neck and choked me which has now resulted in me having a swollen neck at the right side, it feels like a swollen gland, sore when I swallow or eat. I can breath ok, but strain on my voice when I talk. Should I be concerned to see a doctor for any damage or should I be ok?

He also pinned me down and put his elbow full force Into the temple of the right side of my head, he weighs 16 stone. My head at the temple is sore like a half headache, so all down one side of my head and neck area is sore. My ears pop and my head is constantly sore,I felt sick and have lost my appetite. I'm just worried there is damage.

I think you should definitely get checked by a doctor, and do it today. Ask them about your neck and the possibility of a concussion. Please tell them everything that happened, so they can check all your injuries.

Also, if it's safe, please talk to the doctors about local resources for you to leave this relationship.

Here are some resources that can help, too - https://www.medhelp.org/general-health/articles/MedHelp-Crisis-Resources/1037

No one has the right to hurt you like this, no matter what. It doesn't matter what the fight was about, or what he thinks you did, or what you actually did. This is domestic violence, and I really hope you talk to someone about your resources for leaving. There are places all over the world that will help you leave safely.

Please let us know what the doctor says. I hope you feel better soon. :)

I think you're in the UK - you mention weight in stones - so here are some resources for the UK -

If you aren't in the UK, I can help you find resources for your location if you'd like.
