Should I go to the doctor?

ANSWER #5 of 5

It can be quiet obvious. I sprained my wrist not too long ago & I knew I had because my vein was sort of popping out beneath my skin. That's not the way it is in all cases though. You can refer to the symptoms:
tenderness and warmth around the injury
feeling a popping or tearing in the wrist
