Playing football and landed on my hand jamming my thumb.

Playing football and landed on my hand jamming my thumb. Trainer thinks I have a ucl sprain. Whole hand has been bruised and swollen for a week. Is there a chance I tore it or did something worse than a sprain? How much bruising should a sprained ucl have? And how much mobility would I have with complete tear of ucl?

I have pain in my palm and it looks like the nerve is bulging. The pain is also in my forearm and elbow . I play bass guitar and it happened after I had hit my hand between the index finger and thumb with a hammer..accidentally of course during a home project; then a couple days later at band practice the muscles between my index finger and thumb and my palm really a charlie horse. As the weeks went by - 3 weeks to be axact, I then could not grip the bass neck or play and thats when I noticed the pain down my arm to the elbow.
