so, i'm a 17 year old girl and back in january i had a small skiing accident. i was on a slope where i was cut off by a snowboarder. i ended up falling off the side of the slope, down about 15-20 feet. i came out without any issues, except i couldn't move my left hand. my hand still hurt alot on the joint in my thumb to the small round like bone right before my wrist. i thought it was just jammed so i took an advil or two every day, but the pain never went away.
in march, i went to a doctor who x-rayed it and said nothing was wrong, but if pain persists, got to an orthepedic. in early april i went to an orthepedic who x-rayed it again and said that it was broken, but there was nothing that he could do, and it will heal in about 6 weeks. i just got it x-rayed again a few days ago, and this doctor said it will heal by itself in 6 weeks. i told him that, all the other doctors said the same thing, but he just told me that these things take time.
my hand doesn't hurt as long as i don't move it, and thank goodness i write with my right hand. i don't think i have a misdiagnosis, i just want to know if it really will heal by itself.
