In brief: Maybe

It's possible you have tendonitis or inflammation along the tendon sheath, but it's best to get an xray to see if broken, then decide if ot/hand therapy is needed.

In brief: No way of telling..

Sounds like you banged it pretty hard.
If it's still constantly hurting after 4 months, you'd better get it checkec out. You should get it x-rayed to find out whether it's broken or not. Otherwise, no one can tell if it's broken.
