Thanks for posting your query.
Are you able to move your wrist joint properly?
There may be possibility of nerve damage (as numbness is present) and wrist fracture.
You should consult with orthopedic surgeon and should go for x ray of the affected wrist.
Any type of fracture can be diagnosed by this x ray.
If x ray is normal, then you should go for POP cast for support of wrist.
You should also go nerve conduction studies of the affected limb.
You should take analgesic with muscle relaxant for relief of symptoms.
Take care,
