Hi
Welcome to healthcaremagic
After going through your query I concluded that you got injury to your distal radioulnarjoint (a type of sprain). Treatment of it is rest to joint, analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Vitamin B and C is helpful in recovery.It may take 15 days to heal. You can discuss with your Doctor about it. Hope your query get answered. If you have any further questions then don't hesitate to writing to us . I will be happy to help you.
