I was sparring yesterday in a session and caught someone coming in with a hard jab. I felt a pop in my wrist and immediate pain. I shook it off and kept going and actually switched to unorthodox cuz it hurt so bad. After effects no real swelling, no black and blue but serious pain. It is all around the little knob that connects your arm to your hand and I cant even wash my nutz it hurts so bad. I have iced it for 5-6 20 minute stints since it happened (yesterday at 1 pm) and bought a little brace for it too. If I just rest it on ym chest no pain but even the wrist brace is painful. I have a fight (s) in 5 weeks and WILL NOT miss them. So, any advice or anyone experience this before? PLease help...

PS: anyone who responds to this saying I should have stopped as soon as it happened should just move as I know this.

Thank you all

Damn man you should go see a doctor if you havn't already. You might have done some real damage. Failing that, it might go away after a few days or so..

Good luck with the fight Dan

Damn tough luck danny.

Best thing to do I think is to go see a doctor as quickly as possible. He'll be able to make the best judgment, and, hopefully, he'll get you fixed up in time for your fights.

Good luck with everything man.

Sure its not arthritis in your old age?
No really that sucks, dont punch anything or put any strain on it!, rest and ice it then see preferably a specialised sports doctor. It might be able to heal in 2 or 3 weeks, but it sounds if you want it to heal properly it will need more time otherwise it will bother you in the future. Will just have to do alot of cardio and shadow boxing until then. Make up for what you will lose in sparring and bag work by being super killer cardio fit. How important isthe fight can you put it off until you heal? Or you might be able to get through the fight with heavy bandaging and some sort of analgesic, but probably best letting it heal for as long as you can.

I actually have done the same thing. Not as severe from the way yours sound but it put me out of training for about three weeks. For one I took 4 pills of motrin to make up 800 milli's and iced it and wore a brace on it to stabilize it and prevent myself from hurting it again. Honestly after the time i took off i feel the hand being stronger but i still tend to tweak it from time to time. So, I think it may need some attention that neither one of us can deliver, i'd say go visit the doctor. Good luck!

Don't wait for a miracle to happen, get a diagnose, and get treatment! This way you'll know what to expect, instead of blind hope.

Hey Danny, this happened to me about 4 weeks ago, exactly the same as what happend to you but mine was my straight right hand landing on somebody's head that caused the injury. After all kinds of pain and not being able to wipe my own ass i went to the docs. An XRAY reveled no broken bones and i was sent home. To this day i still cant throw my right hand nor can i lift heavy things, some good advice: DO NOT use your right hand because you will injure it again.

I tried to spar and not throw the right but it becomes a habit and you throw it anyway. Even as im typing im feeling an uncomfortable stiffness. I was supposed to fight on the 4th but there is no way I can do that.

Anyway, go see a doctor but whatever you do do not use the wrist until it heals completely.

Damn that sucks...arent you going to the Ringside Tourney? Hopefully you get that wrist better man its so hard to train when you got a injury...because ur trying to not use that hand but ur so used to certain combos u end of using it...lol I was like that when i ****ed up my elbow throwing left hooks...it hurted like hell but I couldnt stop throwing them. 5 weeks seems like a long time to recoup though man

There is a very good chance that you fractured or bruised your Pisiform. I did the same thing before, the doctor told me that I should continue to work out as normal, but hold back on it a little bit. He didn't want me to lose any strength in my wrist by taking time off to heal.

Rough luck man, Just see a doctor tomorrow. Best advice.

Try not icing it but rather warming it, cold is for inflamation and heat helps with relaxing the area and circulation to the damaged area which will help with tissue repair, try heating when theres no longer swelling. In the meantime try taking glucosamine if you think its a tendon or joint thats ****ed, even if it does nothing for your wrist it cant do any more damage to it.

Id google what I said about the heating tho. Im not 100% sure since Im very rarely injured like that so I dont have alot of practice with that stuff. Or ask the doc when you see him tomorrow :poke:

= and I cant even wash my nutz it hurts so bad.=

sorry man i feel bad for you but i find that bit pretty funny.

just ice it plenty and rest it for about a week or so. injuries in ya hand can leave you with life long probs if your a boxer, my former trainer is an example

good luck, and remeber, just rest it and ice it (,maybe heat it with a hot water bottle or heatpack also) , and maybe wrap it in a strap or bandage if possible- im no expert though so if you hear diff off someone who knows a lot just disregard that haha

I fractured my stylus, its hanging off the main bone and may be floating. Anyone ever experience this?

Thats really bad news. How long will it take to heal? hang in there man and dont use it as an excuse to let your fitness go. Come back strong :chomp:
