    I was screwing around on my new bmxer yesterday and took a fall. Not to bad I managed to catch myself. Now I'm having some pretty intense swelling in my hand. Anybody have any clue what could cause this? I called the doc he said not to worry about it unless I can't feel it. Still this has to happen a lot right?

    If you caught yourself on the hand that's swollen, well then your fall caused this...:rolleyes:

    If you can pick up a piece of rice, you're fine. Just give it a few days.

    I would hope so. I was just wondering if any body else has ever had this issue. It's startling.

    When I had a boxer's fracture, (fifth metacarpal) my hand swelled so badly it looked like I had a thumb on both sides. But you'd know, since you wouldn't be able to pick things up.

    Entire hand. The swelling went down and all I have is a bruise around my wrist. Thanks for the concern guys my wife told me to "man up". I love that woman.
