Hi Thanks for using HCM.

History of fall, injury to wrist and air bubbles suggest internal injury. Consult your doctor, get examined and an Xray to rule out any fracture or tear in tendon or muscle. This may be sub cutaneous emphysema also. Now dont move or handle the injured part and show to your orthopedician. Hope I answered your question. Wish you good health. Take care.
