Default Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex or Ulnar Nerve Damage?

Like the title says. I was doing some handstand practice last night on parallettes last night when I got a sharp pain on the medial side of my hand. This pain was diagonal from my thumb, and went right up to my pinky and third finger. The sports med doctor at my gym said it could either be damage to the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex ( TFCC) or Ulnar Nerve. I immediately started treating it with ice. Today when I woke up I had a shooting pain from my neck, through my arm to my wrist.
This same pain happened over the summer when I was working on the planche on the parallettes. After a closer look at my routine, I had been using harder back- lever variations that could of caused overuse in my wrist.
Anyways, common information on the internet suggest rest, anti-inflammatory, and ice. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this and has advice for handling this?
