Feeling of fracture in hand on bending and turning the hand. Suggestions?

Hi. I ve got a bad hand . I have no idea what has happened to it, but it feels like it s a fracture . I only feel it when I turn my hand and bend it. Something like this has happened to me before. I made a horrible footstep, and wrinkled my ankle. Later, an X-ray showed that the leg had a 3 week old fracture. So I just wonder.. May I have a fracture?

Thanks for posting your query.

It might be soft tissue injury or fracture.

Without X-ray, it is difficult to differentiate a fracture from others. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

In the interim,apply ice packs to the affected area,anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting and rest well.

Wishing you good health
