is it possible to sprain your nose? because i was hanging out with some friends, and for w/e reason we started to wrestle, and one of the guys got thrown onto my face. my head was back, and his tailbone landed on right on my nose. i heard a very destinict 'CRACK' [Eek!] and then my nose was numb, and then it hurt really bad.
now, 12 hrs later it still hurts, and is slightly swollen.

is my nose sprained? [Frown]

Well, hearing a "crack" makes me wonder if you might have broken your nose. Did you experience any bleeding with it?

Hmm, sounds like you may have a break there then.

It would likely be a good idea to speak with your parents about seeing a doctor to get it checked. Until you can get checked, try putting ice on the area (put it in a bag and then wrap a little towel or wash cloth around it) for 10-15 minutes of each hour to try to help bring down the swelling.

Are you noticing any deformity of your nose (like do things look shifted to one side or the other)? Also, are you having any trouble breathing thorough your nose? If either of those are true, you definately need to get it checked soon.

Yes, a fracture is essentially a break (or a partial break) that's not displaced.
