My nose a few weeks ago...

And today...

This is not a matter of makeup vs. no makeup. My nose is swollen and bruised and super, super sore. It's making my entire head/sinuses hurt and all I want to do is sleep and sleep and sleep some more.

    Sounds like you might have a sinus infection...are you on antibiotics yet, girlie?? Because if no - you probably should be! :-)

    It must be congestion. Did you ever have allergies before? If not, you can get them at any time. Your doctor will be savvy to any allergens active in your area. If you visit the doctor, they'll ask you if you've been exposed to anything new (or at least they should). The exam will help them decide what it is, although history is a big deal. A good doctor will listen to the patient. I worked in a doctor's office for years. You can do a little detective work ahead of time by noting if anything makes it worse or makes it better (like a steam tent over a bowl of hot water, trying allergy meds or decongestants, etc). Hope you feel better soon.

    Sinus Infections make you super tired. Allergies can make you tired too, but if you want to sleep, sleep, sleep, that tends to make me think infection because I've had them before. It did that to me too and my doctor said they really make him tired too.

    I just read your last comment. If you were sick two weeks ago, then you've probably progressed to a sinus infection. I would go in.

    I have the same but I do not think my is a sinus infection. I have a swollen nose from me wiping it so much from discharge. My DH wants me to go to the doctor but I say I think it is viral not bacteria. Leaving for a vacation on Thursday so I am monitoring me. emoticon

    I have no friggin' clue. Woke up a couple days ago and it was sore to the touch like I'd been punched in the face while I slept. No external bruising of any kind...I just assumed it was from so much nose blowing the past 2 weeks when I was sick. But this? This is beyond some soreness from blowing your nose. Last night if felt like my entire head had been smashed in and was collapsed upon itself. It's hard to describe, but I've seen enough horror films to put an image to what I'm feeling. *shrug* I'm hoping it just goes away on its own. Nurses didn't seem to interested or worried this AM when I mentioned it while I was getting my BC shot.
