The : The bottom line here is that you could have sufferred a fracture ( broken nose). You should see your doctor for an evaluation and possibly x-rays. A headache is common after a trauma to the head/face. In the meantime try Ibuprofen and ice your nose if swelling developed.
Please see your doctor.
Best of luck.
