I had closed rhinoplasty to remove a hump 8 days ago. Last night I jumped up high to swat at a mosquito, forgetting about my nose. When I landed my head felt a bit jumbled. A little later I felt some pressure building and I woke up this morning with a very runny nose. The pressure seems to be building behind my eyes and temples. Could this just be a cold developing or is it possible I messed something up when I jumped?

I recommend that you have your surgeon examine your nose to rule out undesirable causes.
It may be a pure coincidence that that you have developed a cold, a sinus issue, etc.
Regardless of the cause, you want to take care of it quickly; maintaining the right track of recovery is essential especially that you are at the early phases of recovery.
Thank you for your inquiry and the best of luck to you.
