Worst pain you have ever felt?

hands down worst pain, 5 years old, neighbour had a broken metal lawn chair, the little girl was afraid of dogs, she snapped the leg off (making that nice pinched end that they get) and started swinging it at the dog, i stepped in between them and took the brunt of a swing right beside my left eye. there was so much blood my mom thought i'd split my arm open (the one holding my hand over my eye) due to age and proximity to the eye i wasn't allowed any pain meds at all when they spent 1/2 hour cleaning it up and put three stitches in. i still have the scar. oddly enough shock rocks! didn't feel anything until the doctors!

Cysts rupturing on my ovaries. Sad Prescription pain meds are a joke, they don't help at all. My kidney stone during pregnancy was horrible too. I'd say they are equally painful and both have made me physically ill.

Oh, put me down for rupturing cysts too! I self-medicated.

For chronic burning/aching pain it was when one of my cysts got to 9cm before my surgery date. I could barely walk without crying.

I'm so surprised nobody has said childbirth!? With DS, I had pushed for two and a half hours and he wouldn't descend fully (later learning because the cord was wrapped around him multiple times), so the doc didn't use forceps - he reached in with BOTH HANDS and pulled him out. (All 9lb 10oz of him)
I had the mirror up so I could see what was happening - bad idea! When I asked how many stitches, the doc replied, "Let's not talk about numbers..." The next 12 weeks sitting on a donut pillow were the most painful. Thank goodness for percocet and vicodin.

PS: Birth #2 was such a breeze in comparison! (Only 8lbs 4oz and not tangled. Good girl, Katie.)

Mine was a cyst too. But it was at the base of my spine. It wasn't so much the cyst that hurt, but it was the drainage, infection, surgery and recovery. I had a small machine hooked up for about 2 months that acted as a vacuum and holy hell, it hurt so bad! I left the surgeons office crying several times. 10 times worse than natural childbirth!

Shingles. I got them shortly after having a flu shot back in 2006. With shingles it starts with an intense pain shooting through the nerve endings. I didn't know it at the time and this horrific pain shot through my chest--I thought I was having a heart attack! Afterward I got the shingles bumps and the pain--it lasted for well over 8 months. I had meds to help but man alive. I wouldn't wish shingles on anybody.

Childbirth was not a breeze, either. But I had an epidural and spinal to help me through that. LOL

My mom had shingles last year and it was horrible. She was miserable for a month. My friends dad had it a couple of years ago and still has pain because of permanent nerve damage. Shingles freaks me out!

ROFL Not a hero, a sucker! I actually had quite a bit of scarring from it, and had an area that was completely numb for a while (yay, nerve damage!) Luckily that healed and went back to normal, but I was quite worried about it for a while. I remember thinking when Drew was 6 weeks old - THIS is when people go back to work?!?!? I couldn't even sit on a regular chair at that point. I seriously thought he would be an only child because why would anyone go through that twice. With K it was totally different - thank goodness.

My appendix. Oh my gosh, that was horrible. I remember sitting in a chair at my sister's house just rocking back and forth trying to get the pain to stop. Got to the ER and the morphine was not even helping.

OMG Gall bladder/Kidney stones and a kidney infection. Both hurt like he devil and both made me so sick! I would not wish that on my worse enemy! I pray that I never have to go through that again, but unfortunately I still have my gallbladder so you never know. I have had cyst during a pregnancy and thank GOD it didn't get to bad. I could not walk that's how painful it was.
