Soft tissue injury : It may just be soft tissue injury and ice application and Analgesic medication are the mainstay of treatment. However if pain and swelling persist could be fracture of the bones in the hand or wrist

Given what you : Have wrote, I feel an xray is in order. Ice and elevation with compression if possible with a small ace bandage. Don't wrap too tight that you cut off your circulation.
