What would a broken thumb or finger feel like?

Both wrist lock like trigger thumb. They both get stuck. What could this be? Look at utube locked wrist &thats my wrist

Clicking and locking: In a wrist could be a ligament injury or tear, a looseness in the wrist causing a "clunk" when the wrist bones ar out of position and suddenly "catch up" and snap into place, a snapping tendon that is out of place and other things ( btw.. I looked up wrist lock on youtube and all i saw was defensive moves). ...Read more
