Suggest remedy for tenderness in left wrist

I was playing volleyball and noticed my left wrist was swollen on the right side where my vein is. I put ice on it and it became extremely sensitive to the touch and painful. It is less swollen now after 8 hours but still extremely sensitive. Also, now when I put it down and I guess the blood rushes it is extremely painful and I have to raise it. Should I be worried about a serious injury here?

Looking at your symptoms it is clear that there is either a ligament or bone injury inside.
The primary step is to get an x ray done and rule out any injury. Then you may also need an mri to see for ligament injury.
Get investigated.and revert back with with x rays as the primary screening.
