Can someone tell me about broken noses?


I've never had one, so yeah... I can't really write what I know. I'm just wondering if anyone's experienced a really bad broken nose. How much did it hurt, what kind of pain (dull, sharp, aching, etc.), was there a lot of blood, what color/shape did your nose turn?

I know this sounds so random, but thanks in advance!

Well nose bleeds generally cause a lot of blood but don't tilt your head back (this is according to my parents who are both nurses) because the blood will go down your throat if you do.

Earlier this year i think i broke my nose though the PA at the doctors office disagreed anyways in the place where mine was(at the base) my entire nose ached along with the rest of my face. It was very agonizing on the bridge of my nose. My nose and eyes turned black almost instantly. In my case i didn't have much more than the smell of blood.

I've never broken my nose before, but I did a bit of research about them for an older project.

From the accounts that I read, the pain is generally sharp at first but turns into an insistent ache later. You don't always get a nose bleed with it, but blood is fun to write so... ;P There's definitely bruising too. Think dark purple. If they're not set correctly, and heal that way they can create bumps and crooked noses.

The only thing I can attest to is the bruising. I once got elbowed in the nose, and while that didn't break it, I still got a nasty bruise. And that's all I got!

Thank you guys! One more question, in hopes that someone will see this: can a heavily bloody nose cause slight speech impediments? And would these go away as blood flowed out of the nasal cavity and the throat? Thanks!

I'm not positive, but I think that that would be possible. The speech impediments probably wouldn't be severe, but kind of like the muffled and sometimes garbled way a voice sounds during a bad cold. Again, I'm not sure, but it makes sense for something like that to happen. :]

Okay, thank you again! I also interviewed my poor sister about breaking her nose (someone dropped her while practicing a dance routine). Hopefully I can put together a believable picture my character's broken nose!
