RE: The most amount of pain you have felt.
A few years ago I had a bicycle accident and broke my collarbone in two places and my ribs in 11 places -- all on the left side. The pain wasn't really that bad, maybe 4 or 5 on the 1-10 scale (of course, they were giving me pretty good pain meds). Except for one thing: the first time I ate after the accident, I swallowed something "down the wrong throat" and had to cough. If you have ever had to cough with broken ribs, you know what I mean. That is probably the worst pain I've ever felt. However, most of the stuff in this thread sounds much worse than that. I consider myself lucky.

Ear infection.
Had quite a few bad ones as a child and scar tissue did some damage. The pain was so bad a couple of times it caused delirium - probably not to difficult to accomplish in a six year old but still, it was bad. I think I rate pain level by comparison and nothing has ever come close.

Impossible to describe that kind of pain - it's inside the head and I distinctly recall asking several times for someone to cut my head off to make it stop. I'm very protective of my ears; the sense memory of that pain terrifies me. Just thinking of it makes the nausea come back for a split second.

RE: The most amount of pain you have felt.
Quote:It is the second most painful time of my life as the first time was when I was about 9-10. I was involved in a fight at school with another lad and he won by kicking me straight in the balls (fair play) The pain at the time was shattering, however when I woke up the next morning my right testicle was throbbing. Over the next few days my testicle slowly swelled up and became so painful that in the end I had to tell my parents. A doctors visit sent me on the way to hospital where I was told I had a twisted testicle and that to treat it they needed to slice me open and untwist it. The pain then was horrendous to the point me breathing would change the pain. I was glad to get to hospital lol.

I had a class in high school with a guy that had that exact same situation except they had to chop one off.


As for my most painful experience.. Consider
I dunno, it's hard to determine which one has been the most painful, they're all so spread out.

Last year I thought I had kidney stones (which turned out to be just an infection), that hurt like a motherfucker.
I couldn't stand up straight. How I rode my motorbike to the hospital is beyond me.

My senior year of high school I broke my wrist like a week before school was to start skim boarding at the beach.
The break wasn't the painful bit, it was the lack of painkillers on the way to the hospital that really sucked.

When I was 5 I fractured my arm. I know this because I was taken to the local GP and got xrays. They said it was fractured and that I needed to go to the hospital (45minutes away). So my mom took me to the hospital and as I was getting out of the war at the hospital my foot caught on the safety belt, I tripped out of the car and landed on my arm.. again.. breaking it fully this time.
So I can't remember if it hurt but it sounds pretty painful.
OH and the doctors stuffed it up and had to re-break it to re-set it to fix it because the first lot of doctors fucked it up.

Than there was the time I tried to jump the fence to the high schools swimming pool one summer holidays.
The fence was electric... like, very electric...
When you see in movies people getting blown back by electric fences, that actually happens...

5, 6 or 7 years ago, (I am bad with time, okay?!), I experienced that worst pain that I can remember to date: In an attempt to get out of a chair as fast as possible 'cause I had food that just finished cooking, I pushed up with my left arm and twisted it; once I had unwittingly twisted my arm (while using it to support my bodyweight from springing up from the chair) I heard a snap. A loud crcking sound in my arm and it just plain game way, followed by a sharp start of pain, absolutely excruciating, debilitating, screaming pain.
Doctors like the gauge pain with a 1-10 system, 1 being "meh" and 10 being "Please lord kill me!!"; for an hour I was at a solid 15 on that scale. When the paramedics finally got to my house I was down to a solid 10, then they game me a neat little Penthrox whistle and down to 9.

One month later I would find that I had managed to snap a bit of the lower left tip of my humerus using my own tendons, an avulsion fracture. My arm was so swollen that the doctors and specialists at the hospital could not see the fracture for three weeks until it went down, three weeks of constantly being around an 8-9 on that scale, if I moved it maybe 10.8 if lucky.
And that is not to mention the years of constant re-fracturing and pain. Thing is, I still have problems with me arm, to this very day...

Am I reading this right? You broke your arm with your own arm by getting up to finish your cooking?

It's like you don't know your own strength. Ha ha.

Yes you read that correctly.

I snapped away a portion of my own humerus by way of my ligaments.
I really don't know my own strength (or then, the horrible combo of bodyweight and twisting a supporting limb 180 degrees) though.. Never needed it.

Bone pain and back pain are at the top of my list. They are unrelenting and I needed serious opiates to make it bearable.

Tooth pain is close. Smashed fingers/fingernails is close.

'Worst' is quite subjective - intensity and duration both come into play.

I had an external fixator holding my leg together when there was no lower femur. One of the clamps failed and they needed to replace it. In the process, one of the six-inch rods screwed into my femur was stressed and released - the pain was unbelievable, but was brief.

RE: The most amount of pain you have felt.
I've a pretty good grasp on different types of pain.

In my early childhood years I broke my left wrist twice and my right wrist once. At the time I thought it was painful, but compared to other times later they were cake walks and only a dull pain really.

At the age of 12 I was on a hammock in my uncles back yard in the mountains. My brother was swinging me higher from one end and the top rope came off the tree. I landed on the ground and felt my lower back land on a sharp rock that was protruding from the ground. It hurt a lot. My brother started to laugh which made me start to laugh (I think we had had too much sugar and were beyond silly... mmm 5cent candies!). When I started to laugh I felt a shift in my back from my body moving with the laughter and the pain that shot up my back and down my legs was unbelievable. A hospital trip revealed a fractured back. It was a few weeks until I could get up unassisted and walk and for months after I could not move my spine all the way up to my neck. I wasn't in constant pain, but it would shoot when I moved, so it was bad enough.

A few years ago on the coldest day of the year a garage slammed down and my fingers were between the panels. The tips tore off. A surgeon had to reassemble on of my fingers. He wasn't sure if he saw my nail root. It was sooo gross and painful. Yuck. He was really good though. It took months to heal but it is pretty well just like it used to be with my nail and everything, one would never know looking at it that it is not the original.

Labours of course go on the list as cheesy as that is, but to be honest my second child was the worst pain ever, because it involved an unusual occurrence. It was worse that all the painful things in my life combined. I had been given too large of a dose of oxtocin to induce the labour (I was overdue). I was not close to having the baby and they told me the oxtocin will kick in in awhile (few hours). After they administered it I went to walk across the room to leave. I got up and walked to the door and turned around screaming and making my way back to the bed. The nurse looked at me like I was crazy. I couldn't talk or breath. Within 25 minutes I had my second child, but during those 25 minutes I felt like I was being ripped apart. My muscle contractions were so intense and frequent I passed out from not having enough time to breath at some points. It was the one and only time in my life I hoped to just die and thought I actually would (especially by the look on the faces of everyone in the room when they realized the mistake). For me to not care to live and to give up is absolutely crazy, I've always felt I'd honestly fight past pain to live for myself and the people I love but I just wanted to die.

RE: The most amount of pain you have felt.
I've heard of bone pain being the worst. My grandmother had bone cancer and I remember her not even being able to have light cotton sheets on her from the pain they caused.
