Jaw won't move left after getting punched

Without going into what happened, I got sucker punched on the left side of my head. His fist basically hit part of my ear and jaw. This happened 3 to 4 days ago. I went to the ER and they took x-rays of my neck and an x-ray that went all around my head. The doctors in the ER said nothing was fractured or dislocated. I'm going to my doctor tomorrow to see what he thinks. My jaw can move right and it closes normally. I can't move it left and my range of opening isn't as large. It also hurts behind my eye when I chew on harder foods.

What do you think this is? From my researching it could be TMD but it also could be tightened muscles and ligaments on the left side.
