Patient Comments: Bone Fracture - Signs and Symptoms

How did you know you had more than a sprain or strain? What were your signs and symptoms of a broken bone?

Comment from: minimoo, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: May 01

I had a sharp pain in my wrist while trying to open a jar that wouldn"t budge. Now when I move my wrist from side to side I get the sharp pain again.
