Hi

Welcome to JA and thanks for asking

If there is no swelling and the movements of the wrist are fine then you can take some anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen and do apply ice over the wrist. Also try to restrict your wrist movements till your pain settles.

If there is obvious swelling or discoloration like bruise then you need to get the X-Ray of your wrist to rule out any possibility of a fracture.

But for relief of your pain you should take Ibuprofen but as i mentioned you might need an x-ray to rule out a bony fracture

Good luck
