Broken arm, have numbness in fingers, difficulty in moving them, muscle pain in forearm on moving. Normal?

I broke my arm about 2 weeks ago. (radius and ulna) I can barely move my fingers and have limited feeling in most of them. When I try to move my fingers i feel like I physically can t move them very far. Also I feel a very bad muscle pain in my forearm while moving it. I feels like a pulled muscle. Is this normal or could I have extensive damage to my muscles/nerves

Hi, Dtebo,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having fracture at the wrist called Colle's fracture which very common after injury or accident on the part.
Now it is difficult to correct.
Go for x ray of wrist. If fracture is there, consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined and go for the treatment as per advice of the doctor.
Ok and bye.
