I took a bad fall three days ago and my jaw hit the ground hard. Right now I feel as though there is a lump under my chin and in my throat that's hindering my breathing somewhat. There seems to be quite a lot of phlegm building up in my throat. My voice has become rather hoarse and, also, I can't seem to bring my voice down to a lower pitch now.

Did I fracture something? I haven't been to the doctor yet. I thought I could wait it out and see if it'll go away on its own, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better...

  • Sounds like they will x-ray you to see if it is broken. Yikes. Take care. Get some arnica.
