Nose emergencies include nosebleeds, an object lodged in the nose, and a broken nose.
A fractured nose is the most common facial fracture. It usually results from a blunt injury and is often associated with other facial fractures. The bruised appearance usually disappears after 2 weeks.
Nose injuries and neck injuries are often seen together because a blow that is forceful enough to injure the nose may be hard enough to injure the neck.

When many people think of a Migraine attack, they think only of a very painful headache. The reality is that a Migraine attack usually has several symptoms and those symptoms can be broken down into four phases. Not everyone experiences all the phases, and we might experience symptoms and phases during one Migraine attack that we don't experience during the next. The four potential phases of a Migraine attack, in the order in which they occur are prodrome, aura, headache, and postdrome. The prodrome is sometimes called the preheadache or promonitory phrase, as in premonition. It can start hours or even days before the other phases. Statistics show that 30- 40% of Migraineurs experience the prodrome phase, but my personal th...
