Can you damage your wrist by wrapping it too tightly when trying to heal a wrist injury?

In brief: No
The tight wrap will not damage the wrist but can cause nerve damage in the hand like carpal tunnel syndrome.
You should see a hand surgeon to have the wrist appropriately treated before you have future damage.
