Possible Deviated Septum?
I was boxing a few weeks ago, and I got hit on my nose. My nose got swollen, and now I can only breathe from my right nostril. I can only breathe in very little from my left nostril. But when I exercise, I can breathe better from both nostrils. My nose has always been a little crooked, and it looks different from every angle. I also have a bump on my nose. Is it possible that I have a deviated septum? Can I still box with a deviated septum? Should I have Rhinoplasty / Septoplasty for this?
