OT - I think DS broke my nose

Three days ago I was sitting on the floor visiting with my sister while our two boys played together. My son was really excited and happy and being a little wild. He ran towards me and dove into me for a hug, except I wasn't prepared for it and it resulted in him head butting me in the nose, HARD. It hurt so bad when it happened! But then it didn't swell or bleed, and the pain went down pretty quickly so I thought I was in the clear. 3 days later my nose won't stop running, I have a slight ringing in my ears, and a dizzy feeling if I move my head around too fast. It doesn't really hurt overall and there's still no signs of swelling, but I can pinpoint one precise spot that's very tender, and it hurts when I touch it there. Plus I have a headache that feels sinus related.

Seriously, my two year old head butted me and may have broken my nose!?

Trying to decide if it's worth seeing a doctor. If it is broken I don't think it's serious, and from what I can tell they mostly heal on their own. But maybe the ear ringing and dizziness is enough to cause a little concern. Guess for now I'm going to wait and see. Feeling kind of crappy though!

OW!! That sounds horrible. I would think that it's possible he cracked something or just gave you a really gnarly bruise. But like you said docs can't do much for you either way. It'll probably get better on its own especially if it didn't bleed or swell.

But oh man, I know that pain. Being hit in the nose from a run away toddler is like rage-inducing, swearing like a sailor painful.

Toddler head butts- those are my insta-anger trigger LOL.
I hope it isn't broken, and I have no idea what they would do for it !

Ouch! My neighbor had the same thing happen to her. She was really sore and got it checked out the next day. Hers ended up being just badly bruised. I think all the doctor did for her was give her some pain meds for it. I hope you feel better soon. I think if it was still bothering me after the long weekend or I kept feeling dizzy, I would get it checked out.

Yikes. I'd probably get checked out just to make sure it's okay. Let us know!

Thanks ladies! I'm feeling a little better today than yesterday. It comes and goes. I'll see if it continues to get better through the weekend, but right now I'm feeling ok!
