Likely contusion: It sounds like you may have bruised the underlying tissue of the wrist. This should get better with time. For now I would avoid doing whatever aggravates the pain, take some over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine, If you don't have any reason that you're not supposed to, and give it another week. See your MD if it does not get better if there is any redness swelling fever or other problem.
