  • I accidentally shoved my fingernail up my nose?

    Hi, about 10 hours ago I accidentally shoved my fingernail up my nose. It didn't bleed but it hurt. I now have a severe headache which started about 1 hour ago. Could I possibly have gotten meningitis from the bacteria?? When I bend forward there's "water" coming out of my nose, it's salty but the texture is watery. I feel fine except from that. The headache feels like a migraine, but I haven't had a migraine in 6 years... I'm 17. Should I go to the ER now or wait until tomorrow? I actually have an appointment tomorrow with my doctor regarding something else...
