I am sorry you sprained your wrist 2 weeks ago.

and I'm glad you got xrays

did you get a wrist splint to help support your wrist at this point?

have you iced your wrist with bags of ice wrapped in a towel to help decrease pain and inflammation

elevating your wrist on a pillow when you are watching TV can help decrease swelling and pain as well.
