possible eardrum rupture

okay 2 nights ago me and a  guy got in a arguement he grabbed my jaw bone way high up right below my ear and low and squeezed very hard he is a strong man ..  My jaw has been hurting along with my pain in my ear  could he have ruptured something in my ear, I have been very tired also not normal for me I do have an anxiety disorder but I know this is not all in my head..  So whats the chance he could rupture something? Should I go to dr?   thanks
