Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi , It seems you have a haematoma in the arm. Regarding wrist i will suggest you to get a x-ray done. there may be a fracture may be hair-line. Better to consult an Orthopaedic surgeon to avoid more problem in the future. Till then you can continue with analgesics after meals. Take care.
