ANSWERS: 56
  • Physically? That would probably be one of the times that I've been in the hospital with heart palpitations and chest pain (caustal chondritis) and such. Heart problems aren't fun. It isn't always, but it can be excruciatingly painful. Emotionally, it would be when my best friend got pregnant. She was 16 then, and it was really hard to try and help carry her burden and secret while she tried to figure out what to do with the rest of her life. It's hard to try to help someone to decide something that big at the age of 16. The whole experience was very painful and emotionally strenuous. I wouldn't wish something like that on my worst enemy.
  • Standing in my brothers front yard calling my parents and informing them that their son, ( my brother) just blew his head off. then realizing that I had just "ignored" a phone call from him 20 min, before he did this. That was/ is painful.
  • Spinal Tap - worse to me then giving birth.
  • I have been in three car wrecks, one head-on truck wreck, a couple of motorcycle wrecks, fist fights out the wazoo, and have never experienced pain like gout in my knees and ankles. Extreme pain.
  • My beagle terrier mix, Barney, died from Decon. There was NONE in our home, so he got it from somewhere else. Decon is meat based and a horrible way to die. He bleed internally and had to be put down. His death changed my life dramatically and I still mourn him over three years later. The saddest part is I now suspect my ex husband did it, who has since admitted to hating him and being glad he was dead.
  • Getting my ears pierced. I remember wanting to pass out but I was on a stool so I braced myself. I was only 11, not used to having needles shot through my cartilage and then have metal inserted after the trauma. Then again, I endured a three hour tattooing session and didn't think the sensastion of the gun was even annoying.
  • A bee sting UP my nose. ARGH!!!!!!!
  • Almost loosing my husband to drugs.....after filing a missing persons report and not knowing where he was for 3 months.
  • Remembering, 20 years later, being sexually abused by my twin sister babysitters and their brother(they lived next door to us), and the brother of my best friend when I was in 3rd grade. That wasn't as painful as having to tell my parents and watch them cry and blame themselves for not knowing. Also, because I had repressed those memories, when I would have a flashback, almost in a trance like state when one would come on, I would experience the pain that a 9 year old feels when that happens. Thanks to my husband's support and love I was able to get it all out and no longer have the flashbacks.
  • The death of my mother. The grief took its toll on me emotionally, psychologically, physically....
  • Mentally- an hour-long mental breakdown associated with OCD and anxiety Physically- falling on my neck while break dancing (imagine having 140lbs supported by your neck after falling 3 feet from mid air going really fast. My forehead touched my breastbone).
  • a long needle in my finger
  • Watching the ones I love most going through terrible pain. And knowing I caused it. No, I will not elaborate. It's all history now, and forgiveness has made it's rounds, several times.
  • Physically- The time I ripped the skin off my back after convincing myself it was a good idea to jump from a wall with broken bottles concreated into the top to a bus, slipping and causing large gashes down my back Slamming my head against a brick wall until I ccouldn't do it any more Pouring drain cleaner into cuts Being whipped hurt like hell too. When done with intent to hurt, it feels like someone is burning you. Mental- I really, really don't think it's a good idea to go there
  • Dislocating my shoulder
  • Physically...when I crashed into a telephone pole and flipped over the handlebars of my bike in fourth grade and shattered my wrist. All I remember was these two HUGE body guard type guy nurses pulling my arm for some reason. That was worse than the birth of my twins! Mentally...I wont even go there. I dont think theres enough space on the internet to write that!
  • Sitting on the toilet and attempted to ash my cigarette between my legs but burnt my penis.
  • Going to my grandfathers funeral and realising that i never got to spend enough time with him due to family relations. He was such a great guy and i learnt so much about him at the funeral.
  • Emotionally, it was the fact of no longer living with my children after my divorce. For nearly 3 years I would wake up in the middle of the night in absolute anguish. It was worst than anything I could ever imagine. I just hated being awake. I just couldn't stand being alive.
  • Physically when I fell down on my knee and crushed the cartilage under the kneecap. Emotionally when my husband committed suicide and I was there.
  • http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/101715 this would pretty well explain it as I found a man back in september that had just put a gun in his mouth and blew the top of his head off.
  • The deaths of my parents.
  • Pancreatitis, whoa! Talk about painful. I was hospitalized for two weeks and doped up on morphine the whole time, not good, definitely not good.
  • losing my mum my nan and grandad was the hardest thing i have ever had happen to me and its still painful now. i dont think you ever get over it you just learn to cope better the accident that hurt most is probably when i broke my ankle falling of a fence wheen i was 12
  • my hysterectomy. i had been on fentenyl because i have endometriosis and ic. after the surgury the doctors couldn't find anything strong enough to relieve my pain because my tolerence was so high. it doesn't sound all that horrible but it was, it was worse that the birth of my child.
  • Right now this kidney infection feels prety bad, but seriously, there are a few things that have hurt both physically and mentally at the same time and most peole don't know about these but: I had a sort of break down a couple of years ago where i refused to do anything, and just cried. Depression for about 10 years, diagnosed clinical deression for about 3 now, That causes me to be constantly in emotional pain. When a very close (but dreadful) friend who i relied on way to much through my darkest moment suddenly dumped me. Follwed by a few incidences of self harm, the most painful of which was holding my knuckles against a very hot radiator for 5 mins. It burnt right down to the bone and is still very badly scarred, I never got any medical treatment for it becasue i was so ashamed of myself but it weeped for weeks afterwards. The death of my cat. It sounds trivial and thank God I have not lost any close family yet. However he died a week after my 'breakdown', at a time when i really couldn't cope.
  • Physically: that would have to be a toss up between the sunburn I got on my back so bad when we went to Florida that it blistered and the med student giving my epidural when I had my daughter. I had a bruise on my back for years afterwards! It hurt worse than the labor! Don't ever let a med student give you an epidural! Emotionally: Every time my husband and I fight. He always puts me down and makes me feel like crap.

  • When my father died, it was hard, but when my 42 year old brother-in-law, father of my neice and nephew was found dead, it was very painful. Then, when my wife was diagnosed with cancer, I was crushed. She is doing well now and the pain is certainly gone. Physically, nothing has ever hurt me as much as my worst gout attacks - nit broken bones, or surgery, or even my next most painful experience, a blood clot in my leg.
  • got shot in the eye with a pellet gun, 350 FPS and about ten feet away. imagine like 100o needles in ur eye. it was horrible. but my vision improved from 20-20 to 16-20 in my left eye. so no damage done.

  • I’ve died twice in my short life time I won’t bore you with the details of how they both happened unless you want me to, after the first I thought all hope was lost... see, I was in a motorbike accident and the pain was so extreme that I hoped I was dying... but when I got there, after being a devout catholic for as long as I could remember, things weren't the way I had expected, no white light, no long tunnel, no nothing, just silence and blackness and the cold hard wasteland of eternity... but then to come back in a clean hospital bed and be told that my best friend didn't make it through... the one who was actually going somewhere I his life and was 3 years younger than me, much cleverer and much more attractive, was the mot painful experience ever... I lost my best friend and my religion.

  • My most painful experience would have to be what I'm suffering from right now, which is, having two extremely painful tooth aces at the same time. And for some reason my leg decided to have a charlie horse just a minute ago. lol oh my heck this freakin sucks!! As I'm madly searching for answers to stop the pain I came across this website. lol I don't expect to get an answer soon from this sit. But maybe when I get help I'll know how to better handle this situation in the futre. I feel like my head is about to explode and I'm shaking all over trying to figure out what is wrong with me. My thoughts are racing as I try to distract myself to think about something else. I figured out that if I take long deep breath and hold it in for a while, it helps me to concentrate. I can't seem to keep my eyes open very well because my brain seems like it's fried. I feel like I'm going insane WILL SOMEBODY JUST SHOOT ME! /cry I'm never getting to sleep tonight am I =( lol dang this sucks! but if you do have any answers for me let me know. Just so I can know what to do in the future.
  • Watching my father die of cancer. Actually holding his hand when he took his last breath. I wanted to be with him through it all, but I still have nightmares about it.
  • I probably haven't felt real pain yet. No one in my immediate family hasn't died yet, so I'm screwed when the time comes probably, though I won't be young so that might not have an enormous effect
