    If you broke your elbow you would likely be screaming your brains out or passing out – the pain from that type of break can be unbearable. You can smack it pretty hard and cause severe bruising and swelling, and soreness. But generally with a break or fracture the pain is not just ‘really sore’ but extremely painful – there’d be a lot of crying. It is always best to have these type of injuries checked, but like I said, you’d be in a lot more pain if it were broken, so you could wait and see how it is tomorrow. For now, use ice packs on it to reduce pain and swelling. Get a scarf and make a sling to hold your arm up https://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/firstaid/sling.shtml and take pain reliever to reduce pain and swelling.

    if it’s hard to move then you sprained it or fractured it. im going with fractured.

    YOU SHOULD ALWAYS SEE A DOCTOR! EVEN IF IT’S NOT BROKEN AND ITS ONLY FRACTURED OR SPRAINED… THAT STILL REQUIRES MEDICAL ASSISTANCE TO HEAL PROPERLY!

    you have medical insurance… and even if u dont its worth it… so get the HELL off of Y!A and see a doctor before your arm doesn’t heal right or it becomes infected, or too stiff!

    It would be a good idea to go to a doctor, but if it was really broken, trust me, you would know.
