What : What you are describing sounds like a minimally or nondisplaced nasal fracture. I am assuming other x-rays or clinical exam ruled out associated fractures. A smaller nerve branch in the lower end of the nasal bones that emerges to provide feeling to the skin in that area may be contused and swollen and typically recover slowly in time. What you regain by one year is typically what you end up with. In general, most sensory disturbances following contusion injuries have a favorable prognosis for recovery. ...Read more
By examination: The easiest way is to get an examination by a qualified physician. Symptoms include stuffiness, audible breathing, obstruction, snoring, etc. In some instances only the internal part is affected whereas in more advanced conditions the external parts of the nose and bridge may be deviated as well. ...Read more

Cold weather can: Just the effects of the cold weather can cause runny nose and sinus problems. However, it is also a time when your resistance is lowered and viruses can be spread. As long as you are not in pain, it is only 2 days away for your x-rays. I suggest an old-fashioned remedy which is to breath steam from a pot of water. Becareful not to burn yourself. This is what I use. ...Read more

My daughter x-ray results shows she has broncho pneumonia but she has no fever, no runny nose ans she seldom coughs she doung good now and is active,?
Confusing story: X-rays are generally done because someone has a problem like fever, wheezing,etc. Why was this one done? X-rays may be falsely negative early in a pneumonia but can remain abnormal for weeks after it is healed. I don't order repeat films in most such cases. If this kid was treated and better, this is likely just expected findings. I'd need a better history & a look at the film to comment more. ...Read more

Avoid tasks that require concentration or complicated thinking. Schedule an appointment with your PCP for evaluation and imaging. Also follow the advice of your health care provider. Be well. ...Read more
