Blew nose hard, lot of mucus came out. Sinus hurting under eye. Medical care required?

Hi, I blew my nose very long and very hard repeatedly to try to get a lot of hard mucus out. I was successful at getting out a lot (it was yellowish, harder than usual, and mixed with blood ). Now my left sinus is hurting a lot right underneath my eye. Should I seek immediate medical attention or is it likely that the pain will go away? I am worried that I might have fractured some kind of bone or lining inside the sinus. Is that possible?

thanks for your query.
Yes you need to consult ENT specialist and examine.
I think you could be suffering from chronic fungal sinusitis, needs Diagnostic nasal endoscopy and CT scan of your paranasal sinuses.

Meanwhile just take any anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac for you pain.

ENT Consultation is must.

Thanks, take care.
