In brief: A wrist sprain can

Mild or subtle or can represent a fairly significant injury.
So there is nothing as "just a sprain" just because an initial x-ray s is read as negative. So if persistent pain you need a proper exam and a treatment plan. Depending upon what type of injury healing , who you are and what you do times vary.
