Need evaluation: This could be a wrist fracture that needs treatment. You need to see a doctor and have xrays to rule out a fracture. Additional tests MAY be required. In the meantime, elevate the hand above your heart to help reduce swelling and gently move your hand and wrist to prevent stiffness. Get this evaluated NOW.
