I cant bend it upwards or downwards, nor put pressure inwards on the hand (like pressure in the direction of the finger tips to the elbow).
I think its gotten worse. Theres no obvious deformation, but it feels swollen.

If I went to a doctor ($25), he'd send me to get an x-ray ($25) then come back to discuss it ($25). So Im not paying $75 when I have /med/,

hard to say without being able to palpate. you cant bend it AT ALL either way? not even 5 degrees above or below horizon? can you close and open the fingers? how long it been like this? could be sprained, broken, dislocated, strained, nerve, hard to say, need more info

I could do it about 30-45 degrees up or down, but it got painful after that.
I think it was just sprained and I kept making it worse.

I put a splint on and its mostly gone now. Finally.

carpel tunnel syndrome, go play tennis, or at least spend some time away from your keyboard, repetitive motion does that to people, same goes for jerking off, it's probably not permanent.

carpal* tunnel syndrome is actually a dramatically overdiagnosed bullshit catchy buzzphrase that the medically uninformed layperson likes to parrot to sound informed. just like "ROTATOR CUFF" (while pointing at chest) and "HIP FLEXORS" (while pointing at ass). surgery has a 50/50 ratio of making it better or worse. this incorrect fixation on the literal tunnel between the carpal bones (which only rarely narrows due to genetic deformity or dramatic onset of something like rheumatoid arthritis) distracts from the dramatically most common root cause: hypertonicity of the wrist extensor muscle group (particularly at the proximal insertions) due to repetitive and/or sustained periods of contraction and little to no stretching, resulting in neurological patterning of continuous partial contraction of the muscle group, causing compression of nerves, causing tingling/pain/weakness. people assume the wrist bones are magically compressing into each other even though that's impossible.

guess what are 2 extremely common causes: computer use and tennis lol (lateral epicondylitis is literally caused by tendonitis in the forearm)

huh, I always thought tennis fucked up your elbows not your wrists. but yeah surgery isn't reliable, and cortisone injections are temporary and a crutch. just gotta lay off the comp and buy a wrist brace that fits you. if you're one of those people who makes it worse by sleeping on your side and laying your face on your hands, you'll want one of those bigger wrist braces designed for side sleepers.

lateral epicondylitis is the medical term for tennis elbow.
