Broke nose while boxing. Cracking noise, sinus headache when touched. Serious?

Hi I just started boxing, and naturally with the type of nose I have, it was was recently broken. I have chronic sinusitis , and oddly enough breathing through my nasal passages has seemed to improve. I have that cracking sound in my nose when I touch it and it is VERY tender. But also when I touch my nose it triggers a small sinus head ache that fades away when I stop touching it. It has been a week today since the incident, is this normal for my circumstances.

The main problem with nasal fractures is that it can lead to long-term deformities of the nose. This is initially not evident when there is profound edema around the nose but as the edema settles in the deformity would ensue in untreated fractures. Functional problems can be lessened with fractures depending on the type as in your case. However, I suggest you visit a plastic or maxillofacial surgeon immediately to fix your fracture or otherwise there can be long term problems.
