I had fallen down and put my hand out to catch myself from falling back. I've had pain in my hand when facing palm towards or away from me since.

In brief: FOOSH

This is known as a fall on outstretched hand injury and can cause fractures in hand and wrist.
I would get an xray of hand/wrist to make sure you didn't break something.
