Be seen : I would be seen and have it x-rayed. You want to make sure that you don't have a fracture because if you do, it needs to be treated appropriately. A scaphoid fracture is one example of an injury that may seem to ininitially feel better after the initial injury but can go on to a non- Union if not treated correctly.
