I fell pretty hard and hit my elbow two weeks

Patient : I fell pretty hard and hit my elbow two weeks ago. I felt tingling in my last two fingers and after some research thought the swelling from falling compressed the ulnar nerve. However after two weeks it hasn't improved and I'm having trouble writing and it hurts when I lie down and keep the arm straight or am. Driving the car. Gould I wait longer to see if it heals or should I see a doctor
Symptoms:  Tingling in last two fingers pain in elbow and wrist
