Hi Julien,

I hope your hand has improved.
The symptoms you described could result either from a soft tissue injury or fracture.
However you would expect the effects from a soft tissue injury to settle fairly quickly.
Certainly if bruising and weakness persist, this should be checked out further with a view to possible x-ray.
