Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include fractures, dislocations, inflammations, injuries to muscles/ ligaments etc. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile I would suggest resting the hand. Ice-packs and tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS may be helpful for pain relief.
Hope this is helpful.
