Thumb

I "jammed" my thumb really badly playing football (like the spiral hit the tip of my thumb directly) and I was wondering if I either just jammed it badly or perhaps fractured it or maybe even broke it. The first day I couldn't move it at all whatsoever and now it's been two weeks and I have been using a splint but my thumb can only bend 45 degrees and I still feel pain.
