Swelling around eyes, bridge of nose after being hit. Having headache, tiredness, sensitivity to light, sound. Concussion?

I got hit in the bridge of my nose today with a lacrosse ball. Its swollen and beginning to bruise around my eyes and bridge of my nose, when i got hit it didnt bleed but a little clear liquid came out of my nose. Ive had a headache all day and have been really tired and sensitive to light and sound. Do i have a concussion? Is my nose broken?

Welcome to HCM,
From history it seems that you might have fracture in small nasal bones.
Go for x-ray of nasal bones,
After report go for treatment accordingly.
Due to hit there might be some tissue or mucous membrane injury causing bleeding.
Take some anti inflammatory medicine.
Apply some antibiotic cream inside the nose and in eyes.
Ok and bye.
