Thanks for your query.
Since you had a head slammed and passed out feeling it will be important to get examined by a doctor.
Swollen cheek bone,pain and bruise at temple and dizzy feeling suggest that you have had severe injury so you need to rule out two things:-
-head injury that is concussion,
-fracture of the bone of the skull and cheek bone.
Please visit a doctor ,get examined and he will advise you investigations and do the needful.
Take care.
