I remembered when I was 14 years old, I had a lot of overcrowded
teeth and I told my father. He said he could remove them
fast and without pain. I asked if he could tie a string around
each tooth and close the door, like Aunt Polly did to Tom
Sawyer but my dad said that would hurt more so I went
along with his idea.
I entered the kitchen and he told me to close my eyes and
open my mouth. I did and the next minute I knew, he took a
wrench and quickly twisted out 4 or 5 teeth and flung them
into the sink, a gross mess of tooth, tissue and blood.
I was in a state of shock and upset that my dad had tricked
me into doing that. It took awhile for my gums to heal but my
dad was correct in saying that was fast but OUCH!!!!!
Jeepers! Couldn't he have taken you to the dentist and had you anaesthetised first?
I didn't bargain for this "horror story" () when I came to this thread. It's just disturbing to even think about such a thing. It's too bad your father ever read Tom Sawyer, I'd say. Sorry to feel the need to add the laughing faces, but I was just so shocked by your story.
oh my god
i about died reading this
i was going to say 13 hours of labor or when i had my finger slammed in the car door at age 5 and it was a mangled mess but...wow....
OMG THAT is child abuse! You poor thing!
Diverticulosis was pretty painful for me. The surgery was not a picnic, either...
MrV hooray, hooray your back. I've even taken a liking to old bloodeye. There seems to be a new kid around friendlyword (term of endearment FW) check out his teeth. Great hubs.
MrV please tell if you like hubs. We're all waiting.
Hey 'WT' just passing through (as always) glad to see you back around too, hope you're still enjoying the HP circus. Yep Bloodeye's great, he makes haunted houses you know. And I met FW earlier when he told me I should get married because I thought all women were like spiders.
I answered the 'do you like hubs' question.
24hrs of labour x3 with no pain relief and stitches like you can't imagine = rubber ring and whitch hazel and a pain like no other.
labour or a dislocated elbow... not much to choose between the two
MY Bf (while attempting to make macaroni)accidently poured straight off the stove boiling hot water on my hand on accident (since I was holding the drainer for the noodles). Got second dregree burns, didn’t go to the hospital, just put lotion on it. Couldn’t sleep for days bc of the pain. Had to type with one hand at work the next day.
Got bit by a crazed cat (im use to it given that I had cats all my life) bc she was scared and was protecting her kitten. The bite swelled up and the next day my hand was the size of hulks hand, was forced to come into work the next day and again type with one hand. That night went to the hospital bc the swelling didn’t go down. Was admitted in the hospital for a week, they did surgery to leak out the puss or whatever. Dr let gaps inmy hands heal naturally, now have this pretty big scar on my hand.
Was riding my bike from work, a car was in a rush and made an illegal turn and crushed into me. I blacked out. Fell on my jaw and hand. Fractured my hand. Took one day off work, the next day I went to work… again typing with one hand
All done to the same hand lol my family makes fun of me for having a cursed hand.
My bf of 4 years got laid off, had a fling with a girl at work, and told me he fell out of love with me all in one day.
Wow that beats me hands day......ha ha ha ...sorry for the pun..poor you hope you have a new BF now.
lol this isnt a compitition at all, well after my bf got his head on straight he vowed to make it up to me every day. i know its stupid but i beleive people deserve second chances. Im happy i decided to forgive him bc he honestly has earned my love back, we just celebrated out 5th year anniversary last month. But still, the worst feeling in my life thus far
Triple by-pass 9 years ago, total hip replacement 4 months ago.....injection in my left eye 6 days ago. Not finding any other problems for awhile PRICELESS!
I would have to say when I was 5 or 6, I got bit in the neck by the family's dog, a chow chow...that and when I was 7 or so I got my middle finger caught in our Jeep door and the door was locked. Mom struggled to get the key so my finger was stuck for a good 5-10 minutes.
Mu heart stopped for 3 or 4 seconds once. Not only painful, but scary.
being born.. it was so bad I could not walk or talk for 18 months!
Physical-I had an suddenly had an infected root canal 3 days before I was to go to Europe. I had an emergency root canal...apparently there was pus seeping out of my tooth. Ew.
Mental- When my mum was diagnosed with Leukemia in the blood and brain on Xmas eve...died then in February.
Well I feel really bad for all of you. Fortunately, I really don't feel pain all too much...
Okay, I have a really high pain tolerance.
For example, I've stitched up my own cuts.
I've exploded the inner and outer capsules in my anckle and had multiple stress fractures in my foot, and told the doctor I didn't want a cast because I needed to drive my car and didn't need the crutches because they wouldn't fit in my car. I just wrapped it up and laced up my boot tight and went on with my life. Actually that happened a week before I built a haunted house for Six Flags.
i am in pain ..... i have a back injury.... on very strong pain killers, keep trying to manage without them but it hurts to move then,,,,,,
Lets see, I was shot in the face with a 25 cal pistol, that hurt for all of the 2 seconds I remained conscious. I was run over by a drunk driver while I was on a traffic stop, painful but nothing broken. I took some shrapnel in my arm and back in Kuwait city, it was lodged so close to my spine that every time I coughed I was in bed for a week. I had a heart attack, very painful until the obstruction is cleared. But the worst pain I ever experienced was when my little girl had to have a catheter placed to help her urinate, the look on her face when it was happening was the most painful experience imaginable!
god love ya./....... wow you have been through the mill ..... sounds like your a lovely daddy
I was shot twice by a bad boyfriend but weirdly enough wasn't in pain until the third day. Either it was shock or the drugs the emergency room gave me, I don't know, but then I woke up feeling like death warmed over, barely, in a dirty microwave.
The worst I had experienced was an emotional pain; it was so bad I can't even talk about it yet.
I feel for everyone that posted to this thread. Holy cow, people are troopers! All that suffering and we still move on, however we can.
I'm finding this thread to be a good one, in a strange way. Much love to you all and ease of suffering, forevermore.
pain does not ask for permission, it simply happens...
my worst was watching my mom die, I would rather have a live amputation before going through that again
I keep reading about childbirth being the most pain- and it is painful- i had natural births with no medications- but far more painful is the emotional pain of watching a lovedo ne die from cancer. My dad recently died- and he has colon cnacer- it was so lsow- it was so horrible- I wish I could have stopped the wasting away process-
I would very much rather go thru childbirth again rather than what he went thru- Now not every death is this way- my aunt died from lung cancer in less than five weeks- she did not suffer.
Ok for the tooth pulling father- who could do that???? ugh
I was in the service of my country in early 80s.(peace time mind you)To this day I still carry the pain of killing for my life and my country.
Hmm the worst pain I've ever experienced.
I first thought of when I had a mole removed and the needle for anesthetic was put directly into the mole-that hurt so much.
But recently I was ill with a severe kidney infection and irritable bowel syndrome cramps at the same time. The pain was excruciating, at one point I went 3 days in a row without sleep All better now!
Rivet-- good thread.
(There is a point to this short list)
Torn MCL, torn hamstring, torn groin x2, broken ankle, half dozen sprained ankles, broken wrist, 5 broken fingers, broken toe.
I was injured every season for track and football and still managed to break school records for both sports and for weightlifting... my senior year of high school I was in the mix for full ride scholarships for track and football.. the most painful thing of all was loving what I did best and missing my entire senior year of high school sports because of injuries and losing my scholarships... just sitting on the sidelines watching what will be change in a flash to what could have been.
Thanks to everyone for sharing.
When I worked in the adult industry I met a DJ at an all nude strip club. He told me his "goo-goo" was pierced. (I use the word 'goo-goo" because just yesterday 13 of my hubs were flagged and I would rather not be censored anymore. Feel free to go and click on a lot of my hubs and help me get back the points I lost-lol)
Anyway, I asked him WHY?
he told me "the chicks dig it" and once you've experienced THAT pain nothing else will ever bother you!
Personally though, I would have to say the pain of having my heart broken by a woman.
I was gonna say some thing like this.
well..without the "goo goo" I have a cha cha...
but do we mean emotional or actual physical pain? Emotions can cause physical pain...
broken fingers, toes, twice broken tailbone, pulled and torn muscles, childbirth, miscarrige with all the labor...
having the man of your dreams call you a liar and useless....
I would say that was close to the worst.
The worst pain I ever felt was when I dislocated my knee, it felt like my leg had broken in two. I've been lucky otherwise.
I guess I have been lucky!!! The only pain I have endured is a broken arm...
When i had my tonsils removed this year at age 19, That didnt hurt much, but i got a VERY nasty infection 3 days later. I was in hospital for 2 weeks. The pain was unbearable. I passed out whenever i tried to get up. And i couldnt eat for a bloddy week. It was so swolen that i also had very big problems breathing.
Hah, giving birth hurt like hell. I doubt if most men know of that kind of pain.
passing a kidney stone--some have told me it is similar to labor pain and i believe them
emotional and spiritual pain !
and I had a hyperdermic needle put into my lip a few times after a car accident some 25 years ago
I've had 3 children- all natural childbirth and very large babies. My smallest was 8 lb. 15 oz.
But, even that cannot compare with coccygeal pain. Thank God the pain is in intense short bursts lasting only about 20 seconds. The pain is so severe, I can't move or breathe when it occurs. Ironically, my doctor says this pain may be related to the fact that I had such large babies.
Pancreatitis that required hospitalization was another one that was similar in pain level to labor.
The obvious is childbirth but second to that I would have to say the worst pain I felt was experiencing my youngest son being attacked by a german shepard. There's nothing that can compare to the pain you feel when your child is hurt and in pain. He was 5 when that happened and had just started school. 82 stitches along his jaw-line and cheek and 4 years later, he's well with a faded scar.
Had a skiing accident in my 20's: laid on the black diamond hill with torn ACL ligaments, two fractures, 100 stress fractures and a dislocated knee (that was just the leg...) and I was stranded on the mountain for 6 hours before they could rescue me due to ice and a storm. However, this nothing compared to back spasms!
Without caring to elaborate (because I'd have to relive the experiences), there are a couple of things I've experienced more painful than childbirth.
I prefer to focus on the fact that I'm still alive and much stronger and healthier, capable of meeting army fitness standards, et cetera.
The incomprehension and emotional pain as a result of crime.
A migraine to end all migraines...about 3 times...I had the kind you end up in a hospital over.
We built a house in the Hill Country on a hill, go figure. Well once we could move in we decided we needed a yard or my wife felt I needed to fish less. So we terraced our hill with railroad ties. Well we went to this yard where they were really cheap but you had to load them yourself. The one I wanted was on top about 8' up. Well I worked it to the edge and pulled it down. I tripped over one on the ground and fell the tie smashed my hand against the pile beihnd me. It hurt so bad I almost threw-up. My fingers were mashed so bad they burst. No more fingernails, broken fingers with jagged lacerations. Well I got a break from yard work but I couldn't fish either.
You smashed your hand with Railroad ties...? That one does sound painful...Ow...I can feel it from here...my fingertips are feeling numb-ish...just typing this. And on top of that...you couldn't go fishin'! Hope there is no permanent damage to the nerve endings of your fingers...!?
getting my finger cut off, and kidney stones 8 different times. Two of those incidents, I passed out on the way to ER. I haven't had any stones for over 17 years, so I hope I'm out of the woods on that one.
Having a two hundred pound box mine explode underneath the hummer I was walking in front of. Fortunately I was unconscious for most of the time for a few weeks and the military has good drugs. To the Taliban, Nanner nanner!!!! You missed!
The Hummer got flipped on its top, but the my buddy inside was fine except for a headache. I got to dig a pound of steel and dirt out of my back and legs, definitely ruined my day.

This is very, very, unfortunate, but it seems I have been penalized by a Google Alg or something. I have OVER 100 HUBS that have BLUE ARROWS. My traffic went down earlier this year a bit, but stayed consistent for several months. Now it has dropped by 50%. Not sure if this occurred today or...

To those near 60 years of age, have you ever experienced sciatica? If you experiencedsciatica, did you have intense, excruciating pain? Did you receive medical care and did the sciatica simply go away or is it recurring?
