Thumb area injured, broken wrist, bruised, burning sensation. What is going on?

About a year ago I broke my wrist like the part underneath my thumb. The doctor put me in a brace and I took it off and didn't let it heal. The other day I was at work and my wrist cracked , swelled up, and became bruised. My thumb and my index finger have been doing nothing but tingling and sometime it feels.ikemy wrist is burning across the top. There is also a bruise forming underneath my palm by the nerves. What could have happened?

It looks from your details that you are having frequent fractures & tingling or burning sensations at your hand.

There can be following reasons for this-

You should consult to your doctor for this.

An orthopedic surgeon will be best guide for this.

With best wishes.
