I'm scheduled to see the doc this weekend to get it assessed. Hopefully nothing is torn or that requiring surgery....
If you had swelling, you def tore something. The question is how bad. Good call on seeing an orthopod. I would leave the thumb spica splint, hopefully this is what you have, on until you see them. You can use ice as needed as well. Will also help with the swelling and pain. I would back away from the weights too as this will only add stress to the joint. Best of luck man!
