Hi mamas how do u tell If ur nose is broken? And can it be fixed, or do u just suck it up??

My 6 year old got mad and kicked me in the nose with his heel... I heard and felt a loud crack and then blood started spraying everywhere.

Bleeding finally stopped after about 20 minutes, but its super swollen and hurts like hell. It hurts to even move my eyebrows :(

I'm really dizzy and keep seeing spots in front of my eyes, but that could just be cuz I'm a wimp lol

Anyway, anyone have ideas what I should do? Or If I should quit being a wimp? Lol :)

Thanks in advance!


Eta: I don't see any bruising yet, maybe I'll get lucky! That's hard to tell with me though, I've broken several bones and no bruising... Not sure why but that's the way I am lol


One more question...
The end of my nose is completely numb - any idea what the heck that's about??

Your probably going to get black eyes too. You should see a doc. Some have to heal on their own. Some not. Mine had to be reset.

You need to be seen. It's possible to have broken a few facial bones.
And don't drive yourself in.

And, as a paramedic, I'm telling you this is an ER worthy trip :)

Broken noses can be reset. Hurts like hell and you will have 2 black eyes.
Hope you feel better.

What a coincidence I thought my nose was broken yesterday. My daughter head butted me in the nose. I heard a crack, no blood, and it hurt like hell. Today I have two black eyes and my nose is swollen. But not broken. I feel your pain mama!

Your 6 year got mad and kicked you?

You need to go in..

And I would take everything away from that boy And he'd be spending lots and lots of time by himself.
