Yes I am available to chat now.
From the sounds of your second accident, and your present symptoms, you really do need to see a doctor. Does this make sense? If so I'll help you decide what to do next.
Should I see an ENT doctor, or just go for xrays?
What can I do to treat my nose in the meantime, while I wait to get an appointment somewhere? I have been icing my nose and taking IBprofen
Great question..............that is exately what I was going to suggest..an ENT would be your first and best choice....so see if you can get in with one tomorrow. If you just had x-rays done, you would need a professional evaluation anyway. If you can't see an ENT tomorrow call your family doctor...and if you don't have one, you might consider going to the ER to get things started. ....may I answer anything else for you?
I see you added a question while I was typing my last answer........ice and pain medicine are all until you see the ENT. Does that make sense?
Your head ache makes me a little concerned about the possibility of a concussion. Were you knocked out at all?
Ok so what is your best guess knowing that this is not a diagnosis. Do you think it is broken or fractured etc...?
Given you have been hit twice, have significant swelling and brusing and are having bleeding, there is enough to feel the need to rule out a fracture. It's possible to have your sysmtoms with out having a fracture....but you really must go in to get checked out.
No I was not knocked out, but I have had a concussion before from getting hit at practice. This was about a year ago. I am going to go to the doctor to get it looked at. Thank you so much for all you help.
BTW..my wife was a cheerleader....You bet....I am happy to be of service to you. Best wishes........
