    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I think I might have broken my nose

    So a couple weeks ago, I took a solid ungloved punch to the nose, and felt something unusual in it, and found it hard to breath through the side I took the punch on. I developed a black eye a bit later along with some swelling, and that was gone as of a few days ago. I discounted a broken nose because I figured it would be way more bloody and painful. As of today, the swelling is gone, but it still hurts a little, and when I touch it it's tender and I get a tiny little clicking sound when I rub it. It feels and looks like it's bent inwards just a little bit where I got hit, and I'm still having a harder time breathing through that nostril.

    Should I see a doctor about this?

    I would.

    It may just be swelling on the inside still that's causing the difficulty to breathe which may go away by itself. Then again, it might be something that only the Doc can fix, lest ye have trouble breathing through your nose for the remainder.

    Curious... were you hard sparring w/o gloves, or actually duke'n it out with someone?

    i would go see a doctor if i were you.

    sounds like something that happened to me a few years back. i ignored it, at the time but it was broken. my broken nose isn't very noticeable, but it does affect my breathing a bit.

    I have run into 3 different guys who discovered they broke their noses years ago when their doctors started asking them questions. The clue turned out to be they all casually mentioned having difficulty breathing through one nostril.

    I'm one of them.

    I'm definitely not a doctor, but you should get that x-rayed. Depending on the hit, you might have a small fracture of the naval cavity or near the eye. With things around the face, and in close proximity to the brain you don't want any types of infections and you want to make sure everything heals back properly.

    i guess it won't hurt to see a doc and get that x rayed I just don't think there is much to do about it, unless you want a plastic surgeon to re break your nose and fix it... which doesn't always guarantee that it will be better, they sometimes actually make it worse, especially the ones you get from your insurance :)
    Get it x rayed and see what they offer (to me they offered pain killers), if it's not too severe it will heal, and better leave it for now as is.
    If you keep doing full contact MA, there is no point IMO to fix the nose just to get it re broken next time.

    Been there done that, left it and ended up with a deviated septum and funny looking nose. Had mine broken 3 times and stupidly did nothing about it. Get it looked at, chicks don't dig snoring, noisy breathing and all the other effects of funny looking broken noses.

    My dad broke his nose a good 20 years ago (surfing in a storm) and never saw a doctor. It healed, but it was out of position and it looks different now.

    You definately broke your nose. I broke my nose to when a guy WITH GLOVES on punched my face after I explicitly told him 50% contact. So then I kicked his ribs and knocked the wind out of him for 2 mins as he writhed on the ground....


    anyway you broke your nose and you will have a dent in your nose for the rest of your life. Its a battle scar so love it. Make sure you get an X-ray and have the doctor check out to make sure its totally ok and no debris are stuck anywhere. I can breath fine with my nose though. but if you look close my nose is sligthly dented, and yes the clicking sound when you ush in is normal and will last a long time. Your nose will always feel different on that side but you get used to it.
