In brief: Trephination

Bleeding under the nailbed can be very painful because it can create a large pressure.
In the er or an urgent care ctr, docs will perform a trephination (create a small hole in the nail to let the blood out) thus relieving the pressure and relieving the pain.

In brief: Have it evaluated.

Try to avoid moving it too much for now.
You may need a x-ray taken to see if you have a bony injury. Have it evaluated and get the appropriate treatment.
