Septum still hurts?

I got my septum pierced in January this year, and whilst I think the hole is healed fine/doesn’t hurt, it still really hurts if I push the bottom of my nose. Is this normal?

It’s like that old joke, patient “Doctor it hurts when I bend my arm” Doctor “Well then don’t bend your arm”

But in all seriousness. The exact same thing happened to me when I had my septum pierced. The pressure of the jewelry pushing against the cartilage above can cause some discomfort. Generally this will go away in time as your body continues to build the fistula(the little tunnel of tissue) in the piercing. My sensitivity went away after about 6 months but returned every time I stretched. The discomfort from the stretch would remain for about 2 weeks then disappear again.
