Fluid/dislocation: No. It is probably the other way around. If you injure a joint, the joint reacts by producing fluid.

You have to tear a lot of supporting ligaments to produce a dislocation.
Hard to say: If your bone maturity were less than ~14 your own growth hormone level should be studied. If low, or neutral supplementation might be considered to jumpstart your system. If your growth centers are closed or close to closing (bone age 17-18)there would be no point.
Hematoma: This could be some collected blood under the skin. Usually it goes away with time, but if not you should seek medical care.

Ulnar nerve: My guess would be that you are feeling the tingling mostly in your little finger perhaps a bit in your ring finger. The ulnar nerve which supply sensation to this area of the hand passes just inside this "outer" bone (lateral epicondyle) of the elbow. It will very likely resolve over about 1-2 weeks. However, if it doesn't you may require further evaluation.
Exam and X-ray: Any significant hand trauma should be seen urgently. Till then clean skin, and apply ice. An x-ray will generally find fracture, but often when first occurs, may miss a hairline fracture, or one in the many bones of the hand.
