If it is still troubling you .. go see a doctor. There are many bones in the hand and wrist, that can either be broken or dislocated...not to mention muscles and tendons that could be injured.

Either suck it up .. or go and get it checked out.

How do you 'know'? The smaller bones the hand and wrist can be cracked and you wouldn't even know it. Pain would be the only symptom.

i know because when i move it sometimes or pick something up i can feel my muscles hurt a little bit

A break will also cause muscle pain ... or general pain in the affected area. So will a torn ligament.

If it keeps hurting really bad take some Advil and if it still hurts, call up a doctor and ask them they might be able to help you.

Well if you can move it it's not broken.. If it swells then just put some ice on it rap it up and don't use it for a while, let it rest.

Depends on pain tolerance. As a kid I "hurt" my wrist. Because I could still move it some, I swore it was okay. Father and I had a bet. He thought it was broke. Took me to doc's and got my first cast. He was right

I had this problem with my thumb I could still move it but it was so sore a week later my parents finally to me to the doctor and sure enough it was broken, so I had to get a cast.
So maybe go and get it checked out.
