Septum Piercing Question!!

I got my septum pierced today, & it's pretty sore at this point... Everything was sterilized & done in a professional shop by a piercer who's incredibly skilled. But, my top lip is very sore as well as my nose when I laugh or talk or move my face too much with expressions... Everything I've read online is people saying they hardly felt it after the initial piercing. Is this true? What's your experience? I have other piercings but wasn't sure of what to expect with this.
