I broke my wrist about 15yrs ago and it is still very week

This answer was rated:

I broke my wrist about 15yrs ago and it is still very week and still looks out of place. Sometimes if I put too much weight on it I feel it move out of place then back in again and my left arm (affected side) is also notably skinnier than my right. I am 31 now would you recommend getting this seen by a doctor? I get pains from time to time after sports but it's nothing major. I'm just concerned that I may suffer when I'm older.

I did not undergo an MRI at the time only x-ray. I don't have access to this.

Relist: Answer came too late.
Weakness at the arm indicates - pressure over the nerve concerned/ less blood supply or less use of the arm. Pain and moving of the bones on putting pressure worry me. I suspect mal-alignment or dislocation. This needs to be evaluated by the doctor. I would also get MRI or CT scan to get more answers.
You will than will need it to be treated and would also need physiotherapy to get the arm stronger.
Good Luck
