Socked In The Face
Had a kickboxing match yesterday, vs. a squaty brick **** house. He cracked me in the nose pretty good, and it looked swollen and bruised but not broken. It only bled a little bit, and I don't have black eyes or anything.
But when I grab the base of my nose (closest to my head) and wiggle a little bit, I feel a weird tingley sensation that runs all the way down to the tip of my nose. The pain is only a dull ache and I can breathe fine, but I'm wary of a deviated septum.
Any broken nose connoisseurs that can give me advice?
*Edit: I should add that when I got hit, my nose didn't bleed a lot. Only a trickle.

No expertise here. I know many a guy whose had a broken nose though. Today a friend told me about how he broke his nose, there was no bleeding but his nose looked like MR. Potato Head's. I' ve had several bad dreams about breaking my nose. Guess I'm just not a badass though. I'm sure someone who's way more badass will come in here talkming about how they've broken their nose over 1,000,000 times. Moral of the story broken nose dosen't always equal excessive bleeding or any bleeding.

your probably fine. Those kind of bruises take a little time to heal and swelling usually keeps the pain going for at least a week if not two. It'll probably bleed a bit as well as the swelling goes down. A cue-tip or a handy, well-placed finger can take care of that crustiness. Just make sure its not broken.http://woodwardswhiskey.wordpress.com/

Go and see your doctor. You could have all sorts floating about up there. I had a friend who busted his nose (it also didn't bleed much) and he ended up dislodging a huge blood clot a few days later, and then had to have his nose cauterised.
Also, OMG, what about bone shards in the base of your brain :psyduck:
No, seriously, get it checked.
Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

Go see a doctor. It's likely that the nose is broken,
even if you don't feel *that hurt*.

Doctor is definitely on the to-do list. Just wondering if my situation sounded familiar to anyone.
