Thank you for writing to us.
I think that you have a muscle strain or a ligament tear. If there is not severe movement disability, you should not worry too much. I recommend that you start on RICE therapy to help you.
Rest the area do not strain it or make the injury worse
Ice the area for 15 mins at a time every hour
Compress the area to reduce the swelling with a crepe bandage
Elevate the wrist under 2 pillows to help reduce the swelling
Also, add in 2 tablets of Paracetamol to help you with the swelling. Hope this helps you. All the best.
