I hit my wrist earlier, and it seems the vein has swollen. The area around it is red, and my palm is tingling. Should I be concerned?
Not to worry:
You have a "contusion" or "bruising" and hit the nerve as well as the veins in your wrist. ICE is the best INITIAL treatment followed by HEAT after the first 48 hours!
Your symptoms should resolve within 7 days If still symptomatic after a week check it out with your PCP (Primary Care Provider)
