Fell on my Wrist and Elbow. Is It Fractured or Just Very Badly Sprained?

I was in a bike accident yesterday and broke my fall on my elbow and wrist. My wrist is extremely sore. My elbow is bruised and bloody. I can move my fingers & rotate my wrist but it's painful. When I press my hand down forward and back it hurts. The round bone that sticks out on my wrist & the area around it's where I am experiencing the most pain. I have not seen a doctor bc I think it's just sprained? Should I go see someone? How long til it will heal if it's just an extreme sprain? Thanks!
