A 20-year-old male asked:

I fell on my left wrist skating and i felt a sharp pain. it hurts when i move it to the left, i cant even move it to the left without help from my other hand. i am thinking it is a scaphoid fracture.

Fracture likely: Please see an urgent care center right away for an x ray and evaluation. Create a splint for your wrist with cardboard and an ace wrap, if you do not have one. Use ice to reduce swelling and for pain relief use Motrin.
