Tingling nose, recent trauma

Patient

Q: 5 days ago I got hit in the nose. It hurt for a few minutes, but I was not overly concerned. There was no blood and the slight pain went away. However, since then, whenever I press on the left side, near the bridge,where I got hit it sends a tingling sensation down to the tip of my nose. There is no pain or swelling and other than a small mark you wouldn't be able to tell. Is this tingling sensation anything to be concerned about?
