With a broken nose I had a break in skin at the top of the nose, bleeding from the cut and from nostrils, deformed nose, intense pain, bruising around the eyes, nose and cheeks, and crunching sounds.

I fell and hit my nose on my book shelf and I went to the emergency room. I managed to get four stitches on the bridge of my nose. Then they took a CAT Scan of my nose and told me that I didn't break my nose, but now when I go to rinse my mouth out I have water coming out of my nose. That doesn’t sound normal. Also my nose is all stuffed up with blood where I can hardly breathe out of my nose.

I have bad sinuses, plugged ears, trouble swallowing, lazy eye, and trouble reading because of my broken nose. I had a deformed looking face after and blacked out for 8 or 10 minutes. The blood flow was like a faucet when I awoke from the incident.

I tripped and fell flat on my face three days ago. I had newspapers in my hands, and didn't have time to catch myself. I put ice on my face. I had a big bump on my forehead, reddening across bridge of nose where metal glasses bent, and I skinned up the end of my nose. I didn't look or feel too bad the first day, but had worse bruising the second day. I went to for facial x-rays. Sure enough, my nose is broken.

I came home from work to find my husband sleeping. He has a swollen cheekbone, and a very crooked and bleeding nose. He woke up coughing after he started swallowing blood. He fell over our German shepherd getting out of bed and hit the wall. He woke up vomiting black blood. I have treated him with advice from you guys. This just happened. He won't go to hospital.

I fell while walking laps in a gym. I fell straight on my nose. I felt my nose move to the right and there was a lot of bleeding. I saw an ENT doctor, and I have three stitches on top of nose. I had a CT scan the next day. I may need surgery. I have two black eyes and swelling.

I tripped over dog dishes and fell on hardwood floor on my nose. I don’t know why my hands could not stop me. I bled for a long time but it has stopped now. My nose looks bruised where glasses sit. I'm 75 and have never had this happen before.

I was hit with the plastic part of a yard rake in the nose that produced a small laceration just at the bottom eye level. My nose is swollen, and I have two black eyes. It only really hurts if I mess with it or if I lean down and all the blood rushes to it. It's the third day since it happened and it feels better and looks better. Still have the black eyes of course, but I’m going to contact the doctor tomorrow and quiz him for more information. Thanks for this website. It was more help than I've had thus far.

My grandmother broke her nose last night by falling off her bed.

Pain, entire face. I had tripped and landed face first into a steel door. Bleeding, bruising, tears into nose and the separating tissue between them. Terrible headache, but I had just had an MRI for migraines. Only pain medication used is Tylenol; not much help. Just trying to keep it clean. Those big bulging things in the nostril concern me. Month sore from have to breath soley from it.
