It's broken, or is it??

A few months ago (2-3 months) my left wrist started to hurt me a lot, only when I did certain things...it wasn't just like a constant pain it was a ripping pain. The kind of pain where you have to grab it and hold onto it for a few minutes kind of pain, well it wasn't getting better and I finally had enough of it hurting. I have no memory of hurting it, or falling or anything...but either way I was going to the dr. My family doctor didn't have any appointments avialable, so I went to a duty doctor and she had just barely touched my hand and I jumped...so off for an x-ray I went. Lol, the hospital nearest me had their xray machine break down just before I got into the door...the other hospital near my mother's house, they had 3 out of their 4 xray machines break just as I arrived. You can see how one might just give up on having an xray with results like this :p! I went to one final hospital (last Friday), and their machines were all working..as they knocked on some wood...
I got a call yesterday saying that they had a requisition for me at the front desk at my doctor's office so that I could get the xray redone, plus the message said that if my hand was hurting alot to come in and see the dr. I was lucky, I got an appointment this morning at 10 a.m. and she told me they think I broke something in my wrist ( a bone that starts with a T) or it could be a calcium deposit...this is why they are redoing the xray. She sent me on my way with some Tylenol 3's, she told me that I might have to have surgery on my hand and a cast too...I don't have time for this I thought to myself. So I will keep you posted as to what is going on with the saga of my hand as I find out information...
Lol, this hand isn't stopping me from making cards or from going to Julie's house tomorrow night :p! In the meantime I was told to keep my wrist/hand brace on all the time...and ice ice ice.

If your hand is hurting that much it might be carpel tunnel (calcium build-up in the wrist area for some people it's extremely painful others have pain that comes on and off.)
Hope you figure out what exactly is wrong. I know it's no fun to have pain in any way shape our form.
