Tendonitis or fracture?
my wrist started hurting saturday during the game, i hadn't been using it all day really and don't remember hurting it. i did lift a heavy canopy off a large fish tank after it was hurting. that evening it looked like blood was pooling between my thumb and pointer finger, so i held my hand up and it stopped. instead my whole hand swelled and went slightly purple and very cold. it stayed that way all sunday, couldn't get it warm. that evening the cold started spreading up my arm. it feels like the circulation was cut off a bit, and my wrist still hurt to move. next morning it was all right, pain was much less. doctor that day said it was most likely tendonitis, could be a fracture. usually raynaulds doesn't last that long and not in only one hand. it's braced now and is still hurting and cold again but no swelling or change of color. nurse said the cold was normal for a break, but didn't know with tendonitis. which is it more likely to be?
