Should be better : Even if there is no fracture, the pain will be there for a few days. Allergy medication and advil (ibuprofen) should provide some relief.

Fracture nose: If you never had clogged nose before, you might have had a nasal fracture which may not be obvious if occurring high up in the nose consider getting a x-ray.
