I would: Get an X ray and then get seen by a doctor to determine if a fracture or sprain is present. Keep splinted. Good luck

Wrist pain: Can occur from joint or ligament issues tendinitis contusion or bruising of bones nerves and blood vessel problems soft tissue swelling infection inflammation basically anything else you can think of it's great that you don't have a fracture but some bones even show up a few days later and sometimes an MRI or another studies needed to show a fracture for example in the scaphoid so if you're still having symptoms and getting worsagain or by someone else
