You need to see a doctor. Especially if the pain is "excruciating". You might need a cast, or it might be something that will heal with a bit of rest, difficult to tell over the internet.
Yeah, surprisingly I didn't experience any pain until I learned how to throw a left hook. As soon as I felt the pain I knew it was time to learn how to wrap my hands and I have done ever since. Sadly the damage had been done though.

The doctor would just say don't box and put me on some useless medication I think but I'll try to get an appointment sorted. I have been using ibuprofen in the short term, unsure if it helps.

Thanks for your reply.
