    Horse isn't injured, but I am..

    Today I was riding my bike with my cousins and we were riding bikes. My cousin stpped right in front of me and I pressed on my back break really hard, trying to stop. I guessed I twisted my wrist funny because something snapped or popped. I know it hurts really, really horribly when you break your wrist, so I don't think I broke mine.. I can type and move my fingers limitedly, too, so it's not likely, but it REALLY hurts. From the pain in my wrist, my whole arm hurts.. I can't put any pressure on it... so you can understand I'd be nervous about riding, as I'm riding Monday.
    So, few questions:
    Anyone have any idea what kind of injury I have?
    When will it feel better?
    Do I need to see a doctor?
    Should I still ride Monday?

    Just because you can move it a little doesn't mean something isn't broken or sprained. I personally think that if by Monday it isn't feeling better then you should get it checked out by a doctor. Is it swollen at all? If it is you should ice it for 10 min intervals with at least 20 min in between.

    Ya I would just have your friends mom take a look at it. Especially if you heard something crack or pop. Did you feel it crack?

    I didn't really hear anything, but it felt like something popped. =\

    Ya I would get it checked out asap. Just to make sure everything is alright. Also, is it more sore now than when it happened? Usually a broken bone will be a constant aching sort of pain and a tendon or muscle will be a sharp pain that happens if you move it the wrong way (at least in my personal experience).

    Well, it hurts a lot when I'm not moving it, then goes away slowly and then if I put too much weight on it or try to hold something, it gives out and hurts really bad, and then afterward it doesn't go away for a while. =\
    When it happened it really hurt, and then was sore for a long time, went away for a little and came back. =[

    Sounds like you pulled something in there. Have a doc check it out, and follow their directions to the letter - once something like that is injured, if you don't let it heal properly it will always give you trouble from time to time.

    IheartPheobe,
    My daughter thought she sprained her wrist two days ago moving horses. She put it on ice and called me quickly. It didn't hurt terribly, but did hurt. There was no swelling, and no bruise. She could move her wrist, fingers, and arm. I took her to the doctor's, then the radiologist, then the orthopedic specialitst. She had a buckle fracture of the wrist. She is in a soft cast.

    Go to a pediatrician or family doctor now. The small fractures of the wrist can heal by themselves, but it will take much longer, and you may be out of riding for a longer time. Just because it does not seem terrible, does not mean it isn't broken. Don't ride without getting it checked out.

    They may not even find a fracture the first day. My doctor was telling me that sometimes you can't see a fracture in the hand/wrist until calcification settles in and lights up on x-ray!

    The pop and instability makes me think sprain. Please do get it checked. I recently had an ankle sprain-- that was tough!
