Wrist injury during boxing class?
I have been taking a boxing for beginners class for a few weeks now. I do not use hand wraps, but neither does anyone else in the class, nor has it been encouraged by the teacher. I haven't had an issue until we started throwing hooks (we spar with each other in class, we don't use any punching bags).
When I was sparring with a partner on Monday, I got a jarring feeling in my right wrist. I did not throw any more punches with that hand during class. After class it was kind of weak and tender, but there was no distinct pain when I checked my bones (although some pain would come about randomly throughout the evening). Today, it still feels kind of weak and out of sorts, with the same kind of random pain. I would describe the pain as intermediate. Again, no swelling or bruising that I can tell.
I was curious if anyone would have any knowledge/experience on what may have happened to my wrist. I do not believe it is broken, as the swelling and bruising isn't evident, but I have learned over the years that I have a high pain tolerance (I once walked on a broken shin, unknowingly, for a couple weeks without notice). I'm trying to avoid xrays - I've had too many in my young adult life and they don't want to see me back!

Don't punch anymore unless you want to mess it up.
I really messed mine up one day while playing Rock Band. I've had issues ever since, so make sure you don't overdo it.
To put that in concrete terms, I'm speaking this right now with voice recognition software. Typing still hurts, a year later.

I chipped a finger joint early in my martial arts years. To be on the safe side, you probably should get it checked out. I wouldn't worry about the X-rays, especially when they use proper shielding these days. You want to get the right medical attention so that the injury doesn't heal in a way that might be counterproductive to future mobility.

Speak to the teacher immediately, and let him know what happened, and see what he recommends. He's probably going to tell you to go to the doctor, which is also what I recommend.

Thank you for all the concern and replies. I talked to my teacher, who recommended wraps. The pain has subsided, other than a tiny bit of soreness, so I think I lucked out this time. I wish I had sat out sparring though... got the life knocked right out of me Will definitely begin wrapping (and start guarding against body hits, ha!)
