Can a broken nose trigger migraines?

I have had migraines since I was in my teens. Usually once every month or so depending on the time of year and location I’m in. I’m 41 and recently broke my nose, I now have a headache every day and a migraine 2-4 times a week. I also almost always get the “firefly” triggers but not in enough time to help minimize the onset of the migraine.

    Hi sustaita76,

    I’m sorry to hear about your recent broken nose, I bet that’s painful.

    I would imagine having a broken nose could certainly trigger a migraine attack. Did the doctor suggest anything to help ease your pain?

    Let me know and I hope it heals quickly!

    I just hit myself in the nose really hard earlier this week and have had nasty migraines all week!
