Hello,

I think you might be having a hairline wrist fracture. I would suggest you get x-rays of the wrist joint. It will confirm the diagnosis. If there is any fracture then you will need splinting. You have done the right thing by applying ice over it. Do not massage or move it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
