As you mention you are having pain in your hand while moving there is certainly some injury. It is advisable to get the hand examined and even X-rayed. Depending on the report the doctor may advise immobilization of the wrist joint for a faster recovery and no surgical intervention may be required.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
