One week ago and five days, I hit a school clock off the wall and on the left side of my nose. I went to the E.R., and they said it was not broken, and it was only swollen and bruised. The swelling went down, but it is still hurting, and it has been stuff since then. I used a flashlight to look into my nose, and in the left nostril, I saw to things like deep into that was red and kind of swollen, and when I looked into the right nostril, I saw the same thing, but they were pink and not swollen. But when I breathe in hard, my left nostril makes a weird nose like a motor that was not before the injury. Please help.

Nasal trauma and consequent inflammation can cause symptoms like you are complaining. Epistaxis and stuffiness can be present. Since you have been examined at ER and they did not find any signs of fracture, there is nothing much to worry. The swelling you saw deep into your nose is turbinate, and they need not be necessarily identical on two sides. Since there was trauma, it is likely to be congested. There is no reason to be worried too much. Use decongestant drops for a while, and it will be fine.
