I've had Kidney Stones twice. There are bearable Kidney Stones and unbearable. When you have the unbearable nothing can compare. You fall down, curl up, and try to get help. If you can move then you have the lesser form.

I was walking home when they hit hard. Sat in the road and cried, someone I knew pixked me up and took me home thank goodness!

Ramming your pinky toe into one of those bars you put weights on, is pretty "drop down, searing, instant, omg" pain too, lol. Oh man. That was a doozy!

Cluster headache, I suffer from them a few times a year. The pain is just indescribable.
Chronic sufferers have been driven to blow their own brains out rather than live with the
pain, hence their nickname: sucide headaches. Its recognized as physically the most
painful condition known to medicine. A vat of undiluted sulphuric acid to the face would
come as welcome relief during full blown cluster headache..

yes your right,the article i read said that abcessed teeth and cluster headaches were both responsible for suicides as a way to escape the unimaginable agony...

Here are a few examples of my worst pains...
1.A cervix which ripped during labor pains.
2.Torn calf muscle,which hurt more than giving birth.
3.Leg injured by a 5' oak headboard falling on it and
taking 3years to heal.
4.My kids' when they owe me money and don't want
to pay.
If number one is tmi,you asked for it and I answered it.

Death sounds better.

But how does one prevent these ailments in the first place?

I say when a disk collapsed and pressed into my spinal cord,I had this incredible pain down my right leg that I actually cried and let me tell you I have had concussions, cut, broken bones and a ruptured appendix but none of them compared to that disk giving out

unfortunately some of its genetic,the same reason some people have perfect teeth. some people have bad teeth and their father did and their grandfather did and their great grandfather did and sometimes its from not taking care of them,or both. why do teeth have to have so many damn nerves connected to them! why didnt they evolve like fingernails that we file down once in awhile or just keep them at a normal growth height by chewing our food? it does'nt look like we evolved very safe or trouble free teeth. unless they were designed that way!?!? and i'll tell you right now i have had like three abcessed teeth and i have visited hell three times...

I believe it is because we need to feel the hardness and texture of the food that we are chewing. Otherwise we would break our teeth off chewing on pebbles and stuff that we wouldn't realize were mixed in caveman food.

I see noone has said this yet, and on that note, im glad noone here knows me personally...

My first hemmroid...

It was so bad, bedridden for days, excruciating if I made the slightest move. When I finally made it to the e.r, the docs couldnt tell if it was a hemmroid, abcess, or fissure. They needed a second opinion so they call the surgeon, meanwhile I was being finger assaulted by 5 different doctors, I really wanted to die at that moment...

When I was about 12, I went to trinidad and was in a little forest (i think), I was trying to reach for the biggest mango I ever seen, all of sudden my legs were in so much pain, I look down and theres fire ants all over my legs attacking me. The man that took us there scoops me up in his arms, runs to this house, literally drops me on the floor, still getting bitten everywhere, he comes back with 2 bottles of rubbing alcohol and douses me in it. Theeee most painful feeling rolling around the floor in a strange home, on a strange island with a complete stranger standing over me pouring this damn liquid that felt like it was burning holes all over my legs because it was that many bites literally in a split second.

Nothing still beats that hemmroid!

My most painful to date was tearing my ACL and miniscus around my knee. Well the initial injury wasn't terribly bad, but the EMT's I was working with that day, said, "yep, definite ACL tear." Downhearted, I headed to the ER, where the Orthopedic specialist just happened to be on duty! Then he proceeded to completely tear the ligament in his diagnosis. I couldn't starighten my leg out, and I hadn't heard the "pop" that's attributed to an ACL tear until he tried straigtening my leg out. No meds, and I almost punched the for suddenly ripping it.

Fast forward to surgery day, went under general for the surgery, and when they brought me out, all I remember is the nurse asking how do you f..., and before she got "feel" out of her mouth I felt this deeeeep, and I mean deeep pain in my knee. Guess they forgot to give any kind of painkiller as I was coming out. So, as I sit in my hospital room sobbing like a little kid, and pushing the trigger on the morphine pump every chance I could (it was on a 30-minute timer) and then having a nurse come in everytime I pushed that button saying, sir, you can't press the button that often, it only is delivered every 1/2 hour. I finally screamed at them, well give me a f-ing pill or something, cause I cannot bear this anymore, and I'll find your family and skin them alive and pickle their eyeballs...

Then my doctor was kind enough to put me on baby aspirin because he was afraid of addiction to regular aspirin. Bring up that they make percoset, vicodin, oxycontin, methadone, or any kind of painkiller and my visit would be over. I hated that man with a passion. He was the guy that tore my acl, did the surgery and subsequent visits of denying me any kind of decent painkiller.

The best experience was one day he drained the fluid out of my knee (ewww) and had the little tiny needle to numb the area, then pulls out this needle 4 times as long as the other, crams the thing in my knee, sees me seize up and has the audacity to ask if that hurts and that flexing my muscles could be detrimental. No Sh!t buddy. How bout I shove that horse needle in your eye and see if that hurts. I really should have punched him.

Sciatic nerve. Literally "A Pain In The Ass"

I get flare-ups now and again, and during some of the bad ones, I can't walk without support due to the pain. Anyone who's had it knows what it's like to have to call someone for assistance because you literally can't walk another step.

Thankfully I've never had kidney stones - I'm pretty certain that one would top the list.

Back labor. unlike regular labor, it feels like your spine is breaking in two. I had an abscessed tooth while pregnant, so I couldn't take anything for it. The thing that made it worse than childbirth, was the fact that I knew the labor pains wouldn't last more than a day or two at the most. The tooth pain could go indefinitely until somethign was done about. That makes it harder for the mind to cope with the pain. I would definitely choose childbirth over an abscessed tooth.

I have broken both my arms, broken nose, fingers and toes (gymnastics & MMA) and I must say that the worst pain I have ever felt is either stomach pains or having a girlfriend pop a zit on my face (shudder!!!!)

The days that followed removal of part of my colon due to cancer were excruciating, but the greatest pain of all was prior to discovery of my cancer. I had a 10cm tumor in my rectal area only five centimeters above my exit. The doctor failed to identify the tumor and diagnosed me with having a bad case of constipation, so he prescribed for me a very strong laxative. Well, when the laxative began working, it caused the tumor to press down on my exit and block passage of... well, you know. Anyhow, in the course of trying to "clear" myself of the results of the laxative, the tumor was partially ripped from my rectal wall (but it still remained inside creating a blockage).

I second the notion. I've had them several times. Excruciating does not begin to describe it.

If you think kidney stones are bad try colon cancer.

Burst ovarian cyst and spasming colon. Ugh.
Never had kidney stones.. but I'm betting when I went through was pancakes compared to that.

A couple years ago, a few friends and I thought it would be a fun idea to go grave robbing. Well, as we approached the gates of the graveyard I had stepped in the only bit of snow left on the ground. Not thinking anything of it I grabbed ahold of the fence and pulled myself up and put my feet on the top, between the pikes. My feet immediatley slipped out from beneath me and sent me violently down on the pikes, stomach first. Two pikes impaled my abdomen with such force that I had to push myself up and off of the pikes to actually get off of the fence. The wounds looked like massive bullet holes and I vomited everywhere from the pain and fainted on and off. I was rushed to the hospital for internal bleeding. Luckily when the results came back it appeared that I had no internal injuries. I couldn't walk right for a week. Anyway, I suppose I learned my lesson for there haven't been any grave robbing adventures since.

I really empathasize with you, I once had an absescesd tooth that spread to my jaw and I honestly wanted to die to escape the pain. However I think the worst pain I have ever been in was a torn radial muscle that pinched my ulner nerve. Very excruciating pain that lasted about six months. Pain relievers really were useless and sleeping more than fifteen minutes without them not possible. There was many times during that injury that I wished I was dead and found that combining alcohol with opiates despite the warnings of doctors was a very effective method of alleviating the enbelievable pain. It made me study physiology so as to best avoid a similar injury in the future and furthered my knowledge as a result. If I were to rate the tooth pain against the ulner nerve I would say they were the same but the ulner nerve lasted months longer so stay strong, it soon will pass and you will be a better person for it because you have learned about suffering and are able to empathasize with those that suffer needlessly on a daily bassis to maintain our way of life....

I once dislocated my thigh bone and had to put it back into my hip socket....On my own! That was when I was 14, Second most painful thing I've had. I lay there punching the ground in pain for 3 hours, I was all alone.

Despite having had two brain surgeries for brain tumours, my most painful moment of my life was standing on an up turned electrical plug. Made me howl like a yapping dog.
