Yoon I have a spiral fracture of the ulna. Here is a description of the injury from http://www.ilizarov.org.uk/words.htm
. I realized after I reread the title that it is actually my arm that is broke right below where it connects to my hand so it is not really a broken wrist.
Spiral (or Oblique) Fracture
Spiral (or oblique) fractures are usually the result of a twisting moment being applied about the long axis of the bone. For example the foot being held trapped whilst the leg twists about it. This is as opposed to a sideways moment or bend which results in a transverse fracture. The x-ray of a fracture caused by a twisting motion may result in an x-ray indicating an oblique fracture. In practice this type of fracture is very rare and is more often a misinterpretation of the x-ray information of a spiral fracture. Damage to the bone ends makes it more difficult to align and balance the bones making for an unstable union. Bone spikes may cause damage to soft tissue, nerves and blood supply. The spikes may break free to form 'Butterfly' fragments.
Mine didn't break all the way across which was a good thing. I have had it in a soft splint for 19 days as of today and today is the first day where I feel like it is improving. I highly recommend going to the doctor. If I went when it first happened I would already be back training hard core instead of nursing a gimp arm. Even if it turns out to be a sprain at least you know and can plan accordingly.
Best of luck
