Dear Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome!

I'm sorry you're in so much pain - it's sounds miserable.

You will probably need to have an x-ray to see what damage has been done. Did you actually hear a 'snap'?

Based on the snap, the swelling, bruising and pain, a break may be quite likely and you may need a cast in order to ensure proper healing. An improperly healed bone could lead to difficulty down the road.

Please have it seen to and make will you keep us updated?
