When did this occur?

thanks what does it sound like i have done
It sounds like you may have fractured one of the bones in your wrist. In this case, you must treat this quickly to prevent complications of pain in the future. You NEED an x ray as soon as possible to diagnose it, and you may need to be placed in a cast as soon as possible

thank you i wil what do u think is fractured and what wasthe noise i heard
The noise that you heard may be the bone breaking or a ligament tearing
The bone you broke may be the lunate bone or the scaphoid bone

ok i have pain in my forarm and elbo 2 the noise was like a deep thud does this help make it clearer ill pay after this answer u have been very helpfull
The pain in your forearm and elbow is likely referred pain, and it is coming from your wrist, but you need to have this x rayed as soon as possible

ok thank u, the main pain is in my wrist when i try to point my fingers to the floor, and its sore to touch above my thumb,on the arm and it goes across the top of my wrist does this help u in which bone it is? what was the noise,it was a deep thud,like pop
Then it is more likely to be the scaphoid bone
The noise you heard was likely the ligaments tearing
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
so it may not b broke then if it sounded more like ligement or is that what happens when itbreaks the noise is the liggiment and not the bone
When the bone breaks, there is likely some ligament damage as well, and that is likely what you heard
