How do you know if your nose is broken?

Lastnight I ran face first into a glass door it hurt so bad it made me cry but there was no blood or anything today it still hurts and is kind of swollen and hard to breathe through but not crooked or anything. I'm cheap and not going to spend $75 to go to urgent care for them to do nothing whitch I imagine they can't do anything since it's just a little swollen

doesn't really matter if it's broken or not, there's nothing the er can do for it.  it's not a bone, it will heal.  I've broken mine three times, the last time on a frozen turkey.  I'm quite clumsy.

Do you have two black eyes? If not, it's probably not broken.

That's what I figured it's not crooked so it doesn't need to be set it just fricken hurts even around my eyes and it hurts to breathe

If you would have broken it chances are there would have been lots of blood and you would have one or two black eyes. I don't know anyone who has broken their nose and didn't bleed or have at least one black eye.

My son broke my nose when he was one...there was no blood..i had bruising down the sides.the end turns to the left...and it was the absolute worst pain ..it burned real bad....i saw black...purple green and yellow...and then felt like I was gona puke....they will set it if it needs to be set but I just let it go and took the pain meds I was given.

This is how I felt it hurt so bad even giving birth 5 times I didn't cry this made me cry and feel like I was going to pass out and it hurts all around my eyes when I breathe even my glasses sitting on it hurts
