Yes: Most likely problems that can develop as the result of fall on extended wrist are. 1 scaphoid fracture, 2 ligament disruption, 3 triangular fibrocartilage tear. You need to seek care with an orthopedist or hand surgeon to include proper x rays.

Likely: You need to see a hand surgeon to first have a x-ray followed by a good examination. Treatment will depend on what is found. Wrist injuries can be serious.
