I broke my nose a few months ago. Should I still be having trouble breathing?

I broke my nose a few months ago. Should I still be having trouble breathing?

Possibly: But cannot diagnose you over the internet. If you are feeling poorly it never hurts to get somebody to examine you. On the other hand, if you have no other symptoms (fever, chills, shortness of breath, chest pain, etc.) it is not likely that this is pneumonia (although atypical pneumonias do occur). Go and see a doctor. ...Read more

As long as symptom resolve quickly, I would avoid aggressive noise blowing. See your doctor if dizziness continues, or hearing loss/ringing of the ears are noted. If dizziness is persistent you should see an ENT and audiologist. ...Read more
