I’m kind of concerned that I hurt myself more than I expected? Might have broken a bone?? Idk how much force is needed to end up with, like, a small fracture or something and how soon the symptoms would appear so I feel like that’s a bit extreme and I’m probably overreacting but I hope I didn’t do any lasting damage :/

At least 4,000 newtons of force is needed to break a bone in the human body. If you had broke a bone you would notice immediately. The skin would turn black and blue and you would not be able to use the appendage. While it may be unlikely that it is broken, you may have fractured or sprained it in some way. if any kind of pain persists, I would recommend seeing a doctor. In the case that you have hurt yourself do a degree such as this, you do not want it to heal in the wrong place.

You would know fairly quickly. The area would become bruised/discoloured within a few hours.
Look after yourself.
