Driver side Door won't open....

My driver side door, of my 98 c1500 WT, recently refused to open. I have replaced the interior door handle but notice that the exterior one was in bad shape. It wasn't broken so I left it for another weekend. The exterior handle finally broke, I had even bought the replacement in anticipation of the fix. So I walked around to get in and open the door from the inside and it will not open. I have no clue how I should go about opening my door. Any insight would be fantastic thank everyone!

It's possible you knocked the lock linkage off in the locked position. I had a similar problem on my '97. I was able to open it with a pair of long needle nose pliers, reaching in the top of the door with the window down, and grab the linkage and work it open.
