In brief: See doctor ASAP

The coldness of the hand and the pain are worrisome for a blood clot or narrowing of one of the arteries either problem can be very serious.
Sometimes, nerve entrapment or spasm in a blood vessel can do this. Get it checked out soon.

Seek medical attention.
Assuming you did not have a mechanism of injury, a vascular vs rheumatologic cause needs to be evaluated.
