Thanks for posting your query.

You might having soft tissue or ligament injury over your wrist and there might be injury to ulnar nerve at wrist.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination and treatment plan according to that.

Meanwhile take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting and rest well.
