    does a fx nose have anything to do with migraines

    was in a car accident on 3/5/2012 the airbag hit my face and fx my nose and i have migraines around the clock. i go see a migraine dr. and i have been receive trigger point injections, of course they arent working and ive dont two series of injections now im wondering if my fx nose has anything to do with it. could anyone help me with this problem?

    allie_bf responded:
    The car accident that led to the fracture could definitely have a lot to do with the migraines. If you fractured your nose, you may also have had a concussion at the same time, and that brain injury (even when minor) may worsen existing migraines, or possibly bring on new ones. The degree of actual physical damage may not match the degee of headache pain (i.e. you could have a huge headache problem with little structural damage, and vice versa.) Keep working with your doctor, and realize that this may take time to resolve.
