My boyfriend grabbed my hand and I hit the palm kind of hard could I have broken a blood vessel or maybe just sprained it?

Call Hand Specialist: It sounds like you should see a physician immediately. It sounds like you had a significant hyperextension injury to your thumb and you may have torn some of the ligaments that support your thumb because of the amount of swelling and redness.
