I am sorry you have this pain and swelling in your hand and wrist.

you may have injured or inflamed your wrist which can cause pain and swelling in the hand

you should try to elevate the hand above your heart and ice your wrist with a bag of ice to help decrease swelling in the area

this could help decrease the swelling in the hand and decrease pain.

Will this stop numbness and tingling up my arm? I have a picture of how my hand looked
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

it will help the numbness and tingling in your wrist and hands

you may have a pinched nerve in your neck causing the symptoms in your arm.

This is how it looked
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

that is pretty damn swollen. you need to elevate and ice the wrist

and you should make an appointment to see your doctor and gets some ultrasounds of the arm to check for blood clots

and MRI scans of your neck to check for pinched nerves.

do you have a doctor you can see?
