Biggest pain you've ever felt?

Ingrown toenails may be up there with the things that have the highest pain to most pathetic injury ratio. I had one a while back and man, its bad. You fucking lightly touch the ground with it and immediately it feels like someone shoved a knife down your toe.

As for the worst pain I have ever experienced... Well, I suffered from stomach pains for half a year. It didnt hurt THAT much, enough to keep me in bed half the time, but it was pretty much consistent for 5 months, so it got really ugly. 5 months of feeling like someones cramping your guts together into a postal stamp... Urgh.

Alergy test shots. they give you around a hundred shots in a 3 days span bu they are very shallow shot, as soon as the needle gets under your skin they pull your skin out with the needle. I was about 10 years old when i got through that.

Captcha: nice job. Not quite, i cried and screamed with all my lungs the whole time.

I cracked my head open on pavement once (friend pushed me down concrete stairs) I was knocked out for a good 20 mins, I was taken to a doctor by my Mum, the doctor decided to stitch me up while I was unconscious, I woke up face down covered in blood with 3 people holding me down while I could feel a needle and thread go through my scalp while I still had a cracked skull and bleeding everywhere, until my Mum mentioned this a few years ago I always thought this was a horrible nightmare I had (repressed memory, yay!) I also crashed into a corner of a wall (a steel corner go figure) when I was about 3 and cracked my forehead head open I remember sitting in a hospital bleeding out for about 4 hours with no pain killers or anaesthetic, until a nurse suggested my Mum should go see a doctor, 'really lady? What are hospitals for?!' oh and because I 'waited' so long to be seen by a doctor I have a large unsightly scar on my forehead, whoo!

My most painful event was probably nocking out a front tooth, and nocking one out of place when I was four. To add salt to the wound, the doctor decided to put his hand in my mouth, and jam my wiggly tooth back into the tooth hole (socket?).

Damn i don't know...

I do believe when I was picking a piece of glass out of my foot. I picked the entire first layer of my skin off (the glass was just on the first layer, not in it) and I picked skin off by itself. Veryyyy painful.

Breaking up with my first girlfriend.

Broke my right arm in a car accident when i was 7, in the more recent years my right shoulder likes to dislocate which is also quite painful. Also in high school had a guy roll over me in a wrestling match which nearly broke my nose

yogibbear:
Had a 10cm deep, 15cm long cut into my ass crack to remove an ingrown hair...

Sorry, but that just sounds absolutely hilarious. It isn't, I know, and that's a fucking huge cut, but god, I laughed a lot. Maybe because it's 1:30 in the morning...

I had a cap for my tooth poorly made, and basically, food got under it. Bacteria basically ate the tooth away. Then, the pain started. Imagine having a soldering iron plunged into your ear. FUCKING HELL. I could not sleep, think, eat, breathe, or anything without crying when it hit. It'd happen randomly, even during class, or half-way through the night. Took a month for the doctor to see me. Then it just kept happening before the operation happened to remove the cap. I was given anesthesia for it, so I can't really remember. Now, I don't usually cry from pain. This was so intense that I could do nothing else.

Another was an infected ingrown toenail. Hurt like a bitch for a week. If I moved it, pain. Then, of course, I hit it against a table leg...

I went to the doctor as soon as I could. The "operation" took 5 minutes, no anesthesia. Just pain. I couldn't see what had happened, as he put some curtain thing between me and my toe, so that was good, at least. Hurt even after the op. For 5 minutes. Just remained the same, and then disappeared.

EDIT: Toenail, all my fault. Kids, don't bite or pull your nails. Finger, toe, whatever. I did, for about 17 years. I'm 17. At least once a year, I'd have to get an operation for something stupid that I caused. I did stop, but that took a hell of a lot of willpower.

I've never had a really serious injury but the worst I've ever felt is when I hurt my knees hiking about two years ago. I don't know how badly I was actually hurt, but I fell off a cliff and landed on my feet, limp like a cat to diffuse the impact and all that, but it still hurt like a bitch, it was pretty long fall and I didn't roll, so I kind of landed properly then keeled over. I hiked back without much pain, but later that night I tried to get up to get something to eat and found out that I couldn't move. My knees were in incredible pain and I literally could not move them to stand up, no matter how much I tried to force through it. The pain was constant regardless of the weight I put on it, it only increased when i tried to bend my legs, so I'm suspecting it was a tendon/ligament problem. Anyways, I laid in bed for three days just crawling to the bathroom when I needed it and getting food brought to me. After three days I could walk again, and I was pretty much better after a week, though if I put too much stress on it my left knee, which was worse off, will start hurting again.

Stepped on a big Sea Urchin once. We were pretty far out from civilization, so my dad had to try and get the deeply embedded spines out with two knives. That didn't end well. Eventually, we just left them in there because they were basically impossible to get out (even for a doctor a few days later).

Appendicitis was pretty bad, but nothing compared to that. I also got smashed in the head with a golf club once (accidently - don't ever play golf with a woman :P).

Based on what I've been reading here, I've gotten off pretty lucky with a baseball breaking my nose on 2 separate occasions.

Happened to me once. Poorly designed hotel. Hurt for an hour or so. It was a small one though. Got back to my room, dad went to get vinegar. Put my toe in, and took a nap on the balcony. All gone. The spines are mostly calcium, and dissolve quickly in white vinegar. Most aren't even poisonous.

Having my teeth torn from my gums using a dentists cleaning pick like a crowbar with no pain killers. Shit was so painful I have recurring nightmares about it

Seems like I've had it pretty easy compared to some people on here.

I used to get terrible migraines but I worked out a method to avoid them. There are several signs before I get a migraine, first of all I get an aura in the corner of one (or both) of my eyes (this means basically my vision is extremely blurred in the corner, like a blind spot), then my hands and arms begin to tingle like I've got pins and needles, then the migraine hits. But when I get an aura I know if I lie down and close my eyes tight for 10 minutes or so it will go away, and the migraine never comes. Thanks to this I haven't had a real migraine for years now, but when I used to get them my god they were bad.

This one wasn't even that painful, but it should have been. When I was about 12 I remember my brother had lego bits lying around and some of them were broken, and there was one very sharp broken bit of plastic, like a pole (not sure what it was supposed to be before it broke) maybe 1.5cm thick and 7cm long. I stepped on it and it went right though my foot through the sensitive middle area. I remember it hurting and I remember hopping around for a second, but I also remember pulling it out by myself before getting my mum to bandage it, and I don't remember crying or really thinking it was a big deal. It's weird because these days I'm very sensitive to pain.

Slashed my chest and chipped a rib back in high-school when some kids were shoving each other, one flew on me and I lost balance and fell chest first on a faucet. Strangest thing was at the time I didn't feel a damn thing, sure it was hard to breathe but it didn't hurt at first. Went to the hospital, cleaned the wound, yatta yatta, following day it hurt to exist. Everything I did was followed by the sharpest and most agonizing pain in my chest, breathing was very painful, talking was almost impossible, each step I took was so difficult my legs went limp with the pain.

Wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Tattoo on left forearm got infected. I had to hold my arm over my head (kept the pressure down) for 4 days. Lowering it at all felt like my arm would literally burst open.

Unfortunately we didn't have any vinegar on hand as we'd taken our boat to a pretty remote area. This one wasn't poisonous either fortunately, but it was very big and the spines were damned hard to get out.

I'm actually probably pretty lucky that it wasn't a poisonous species, considering I live in Australia.

Probaly, the time I broke my leg. I feel like a wuss now...

Bruised lung, very sharp pain. I couldn't lie down to sleep due to the pressure of my chest on my lung so I slept in a sitting position for a week. Tylenol 3 didn't do jack all to help either.

I also had an ingrown toenail for about 10 years, I finally got the surgery to fix it last December. The pain I felt when the painkillers wore off after the surgery was pretty intense too, but not quite as much as the bruised lung.

Yeah, that's pretty lucky. They tend to break up really easily, too. I just got back to my room, and googled on my phone how to deal with it. I'd have needed to pay for the wifi, but their login screen was broken, and just let you use it.

I have Crohn's Disease as a result of that my small intestine preferred and began leaking stomach acid and what ever was in my stomach that was not vomited up into my abdomen. That shit hurts really bad.

I almost died and had to have emergency surgery to repair my intestines. I had over a foot of damaged bowel.

Recovery wasn't that much more pleasant.

Oooh that's a toughie.
Is it the time I broke my left arm as a child?
Is it the time I broke my left arm riding a bike?
Is it the time I broke my left arm whil bringing in the washing?
Or is it the time I got my brown rotten tooth pulled?

Thank you for these memories OP

Broken ankle when I was 13...landed on it, snapped a bone inside and knocked a load of the others out of place by bending it right back. Needed surgery, and an ingrown toenail when I was learning to walk again did not help. In contrast, the second time I broke my ankle about a year ago was nearly painless, because I only thought it was twisted at first and walked around the hospital on it for a few hours.

Killer migraine which lasted for days while having an ear infection-in both ears. May I never surpass that horror. Could barely see, couldnt sleep, couldnt lie my head down...

I had a severely herniated disk and my sciatic nerve looped out of the back of my spine instead of the side. The result of this was that it had no more slack and it felt like every nerve fiber in my right leg was being pulled out thru my lower back. Morphine barely touched it. No real sleep for 7 days.

Stepping into a pit of ash from burnt garbage that was still hot .. I was 10 and at scouts in Malawi, Africa .. third degree burns over the sides of the feet - had jumped straight back out, but the damage was done.

Worst pain since then.. kicking my little toe into something solid, while walking around at home.. suspect I fractured it - it's still slightly bigger than its counterpart on the other foot.

Hmm actually, scratch the toe - although it lasted longer, the worst pain was due to a big cavity in my remaining bottom wisdom tooth - most of a week of nurofen (painkiller) until I got it removed as an emergency (of sorts) operation at the local dental hospital, and got out the two top wisdom teeth as a job lot (they were coming out of the gum at an angle that would push against the neighbouring teeth).

A parting blow from those teeth was that the bottom of that bottom wisdom tooth was hooked under the nerve and I could feel that through the local anaesthetic. The tooth had to be broken apart into pieces by drilling it. It was a relief to put that episode behind me.

Probably when i crushed my little finger in our heavy wooden outer door before puberty

Or when i held a fireworks fountain upside down in my hand
The whole thing swelled up to a pusy mess, had to have it bandaged for about a week

Ultrajoe:
Migraines. It's not so much the pain as the crippling disorientation and nausea that accompanies the whole 'white-hot spike through the skull' feeling. Thankfully, I get them very infrequently.

The ways it screws with your vision can be really fun, though, until the sickness and pain starts. Live in a green-filtered world for a bit, or have your brain edit out your own arms from your vision. Trippy shit.

Whaat? That sounds way more serious than a simple headache

Spontaneous kidney failure due to burst blood vessels in the sides. People poked a bit too hard, too many times, on the same spot. I didn't sleep, I passed out from sleep deprivation because the pains were keeping me up. Like a constant electrical charge surging through my sides.

Appendicitis.

It took around 12 hours of waiting and switching hospitals for me to get my appendix removed as well. God that was a terrible day.

i have heart pressure lowdowns and once i got one at a mall, i couldnīt think and barely talk. more than pain, i couldnīt feel anything except of my whole body shaking. it was one of the most terrifying fellings i ever had

i know that feel bro

I had the right set of my wisdom teeth removed a few years ago, and they gave me T3s. No one cared to mention that they may not work on me. Suffice to say, it felt like a fucking donkey kicked me in the face.

When I got the left set removed, extra strength liquid tynol. Never felt a thing.

And people still wonder why I hate the dentist.

I'm largely free from injury in my lifetime...

Having my lip sewn up largely without anaethesia, I suppose. I got mugged in Russia, involving bruised ribs and a split lip.

The anaesthesia didn't seem to stick. Badness, given that a large portion of bloody infected lip seemed to be cut off before the remainder was inexpertly sewn together with old-style wire stiches.

Rubbish, but not terrible in the grand scheme of things.

I've not been kicked in the knackers for years.

I dislocated and broke my wrist when snowboarding (on the first day, on the first damn piste!). That... didn't really hurt much honestly, I sorta just kept going and told the group "I think I hurt my wrist" when we stopped.

Anyway, the painful part was after I had the x-rays and was told it was broken and dislocated. The doctor told me anaesthetic would hurt just as much as resetting it and I believed him. I believe he was wrong. Having a broken wrist jerked around in 360 motions had me lying on the table gripping as hard as I could with my other hand trying not to yell. The male nurse at the office was nice though! :D
