In brief: Be seen

We see a lot of patients with that history that sustain a fracture of the 5th metacarpal otherwise known as a boxers fracture.
You would be wise to be seen and have this ruled out.

In brief: Injury to hand

Time will tell, but I suggest you get an X-ray to make sure no fracture exists.
