Pain after fall on outstretched hand
Today is Wednesday, on Monday I fell on the ice in the parking lot at my college and landed with most of my weight on my palm.  Over the last few days, the pain has increased, and my shoulder is stiff.  My elbow is very sore when I move it on the inside and my wrist hurts quite a bit by the base of my thumb.  I am just wondering if I should just continue with ice or if I should go have x-rays.  I have limited babysitting and I don't want to go if I am going to be fine, but I am really hurting.  Just wondering if anyone has any advise.  Thank you in advance.

Hi, you should take X rays,this could be scaphoid fracture or head of first metacarpal. Please continue pain killers if you are already taking it and tie crepe bandage around wrist and hand.
