Well from what you are describing it seems clear to me that you may have developed osteoarthritis in the wrist joint. Osteoarthritis is one of the major types of arthritis which can develop after trauma such as a fracture in any joint. This can cause pain which worsens on using the joint as well as stiffness and sometimes tenderness over the joint. resting the affected joint usually makes it feel better. With what you are describing it is very likely that you have a very early form of the arithritis. The good news here is that with treatment the changes can be stopped or even reversed in some cases. The first thing to do would be to get an xray of the wrist joint and the surrounding bones and if needed a MRI of the wrist should also be done as well. Secondly once that is done you can get started on treatment. Now there are several things which you can do at home which can help here as well,
Use heat and cold to manage pain. Both heat and cold can relieve pain in your joint. Heat also relieves stiffness, and cold can relieve muscle spasms and pain
Capsaicin. Topical capsaicin — an active component in hot chili peppers — applied over an arthrititic joint may be an alternative for people who can't take NSAIDs. It may not be noticeably helpful unless consistently applied three to four times a day for several weeks. Be sure to wash your hands well after applying capsaicin cream.
Braces. Applying a wrist brace can be very helpful as it will prevent undue stress on your joint at all times.
Physiotherapy. Physiotherapy will play a major role at this point in time. This will strengthen the muscle s around your joint and can also help with the pain
NSAIDs. You can use OTC anti inflammatory agents like motrin and aleve which will help in reducing the inflammation inside the joint
Supplements. Some supplements can help here like glucosamine and chondritin sulfate. Others include vitamin E, C and calcium and Vitamin D supplements.
Now i would suggest that you start the above interventions but at the same time schedule an appointment with your doctor and have this evaluated.
