    Is my hand broken or just bruised?

    This morning I was walking up my steps with a rather heavy box and I bumped the back of my hand (between the bottom of my index finger and my wrist) into a trim corner very hard! So hard that it instantly made me feel nauseous. My hand looks ok, just a small red mark but it hurts quite a bit. I can move my wrist. I can make a fist. But it hurts not only where the corner hit it, but about an inch or so down from it, closer to my wrist. Could this possibly be nerve damage? I'm debating on how to handle this. I don't want to over react if it's just a bruise. Anyone experience anything similar?

    It sounds like its bruised. I would keep an eye on it for 2 days and then see your GP if it's worse.
