Cheek Bone Injury

Hello! New here, looks like a good forum! Here's my story:
Going uphill and chain came off my bmx bike, May 16, 2011. I smacked the asphalt with my left cheek bone pretty hard, couldn't use my right hand fingers although they were not injured and I had no neck pain. Went to er, they took x-rays, cheek extremely swollen, huge black eye, both index fingers and wrists were hyper-sensitive to touch and I felt quite sleepy. They said the cheek bone was not fractured and did not see any neck injury or concussion. By this time I was able to use the right hand fingers but both left and right hands ached. Was told to use ice on cheek and take Advil, also given pain meds.
Today, black eye is pretty much gone but I have extreme periodic episodes of pain in the cheek and it is tender to touch. Also, it is effecting my upper and lower teeth on that cheek side, very painful. Skin is quite sensitive to touch from arms to upper chest, head. Feels like nerves are rebelling. Question is, could this resolve or should I see a doctor? Just want to make sure I am giving it enough time to heal. Also, could there be a slight fracture to to the cheek that didn't show up due to all the swelling? Guessing there is nothing that could be done about that anyway.
Thanks for any information and taking the time to read this.
