 Might be related in that it may have caused a septal deviation that now contributes to sinusitis.  You may want to see an ENT Surgeon for evaluation.

  A  broken nose can cause a deviated septum and bone spur formation the internal portion of the nose which can lead to headaches. chronic sinusitis can also cause facial headaches as well.  Best to perform a CAT scan of your nose and sinuses  to delineate extent of the facial headaches  and any associated deviated septum.Please see the link below for examples of how we have repaired a crooked/ broken nose

Nose is sore seven years after a nasal fracture

If you have developed sore in the nose or sinus recently, chances are you have a new problem not related to your nasal fracture of seven years ago. Best to see you primary doctor or ENT to sort things out.

Broken Nose is Painful

A remote history of a broken nose (7 years) could be the source of recurrent pain. As the weather and humidity levels change, old healed fractures can swell and cause pain. 7 years is a very long time though. It's more likely due to seasonal allergies, recurrent trauma to the nose or underlying sinus issues. I would consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for advice and treatment if necessary.
