Tip of the nose hurts after rubbing nose, it feels as if my nose is broken? I somehow shifted a bone in the nose by rubbing my nose.

there is no bone at the tip of the nose
the bony part of the nose ends about halfway down the nose from your forehead
beyond this there is only cartilage
without major trauma to the nose like getting hit with a baseball or a fist
it is extremely unlikely that you have anything wrong that time alone will not heal
if you are a smoker or if this problem persists it would be wise to have your doctor look at your nose, both on the outside and insid
simply to check for any internal abnormalities that migh indicate a problem
but for now i think giving this a few weeks to resolve would be fine
