Pics best not words!: This is the perfect illustration of the common saying: "A picture is worth a thousand words" and in this case, an X-ray beats all words! Nothing you write & nothing we say can replace an image of your bones, the only way to determine if you have a fracture or not. Please go to an ER or an UC center & get an X-ray. If fractured, proper treatment is essential to ensure that your wrist works OK
