Having to be a guinea pig for a blood draw with a just learning phlebotomist. She kept redirecting the needle and it hurt so bad. I told her to stop and another nurse had to run over and stop her because I was passing out and about ready to puke. Ever since then I've been afraid of getting blood drawn or getting shots. I work at a vet clinic so I'm around needles alot. I'm ok if I have control of them and I can draw blood and give shots to the animals just fine.
I was tested for oxygen level in my blood, and a student did it on me. Imagine a long needle in your wrist, just between two bones, the feeling of the needle scraping against the bones. And an inexperienced student who had to find the vein and wriggle the needle inbetween sinews and bones. I never cry because of pain, but this time I almost cried.. And the student cried more than me, I had to comfort her while struggling my tears... Nex time I did the same test it was a different experience, almost no pain at all....
breaking a pinky finger when i was 5 on a power ranger toy sucked. then in 5th grade i broke my foot and tore a ligament after falling down a flight of stairs because my bookbag weighed more than me, i guess i can say that one sucked the most since i still have pain from that and need ligament surgery. I'll be having my son in February so i guess that'll take the number one spot later...
Getting my index finger slammed between boards at a prefab construction company when I was a teenager, I had to go to hospital after a couple days to get it pierced so they could let the blood squirt out and relieve the pressure Only got that done because the pain was incredible. Burning my finger by picking up an ember once (about the same age) and THAT hurt almost worse than slamming the damn finger. Having the suchres yanked from my gums after wisdom tooth extraction- I dispute that child birth could hurt as much.
Of the things I'd remember, I'd have to say the worst were
When I was a kid at sailing camp, I was in the boat, and something went wrong, a bit of the mast came off but was still attached by the sail, so it came swinging around and hit me in the face. I was knocked about 10 feet, aparrently, right into the water. I had a huge lump on my head for about a week.
Trying to sled of a ramp, I crashed down directly onto my tailbone, and that sucked. We were pretty sure I had fractured it, and i couldn't walk right for a long time. I still can't sit up perfectly straight for very long without it hurting.
And just a month or two ago when I was helping to carry a laundry machine up the stars, and It landed on my hand. In case that wasn't bad enough, I made the mistake of trying to yank my hand out from under it without lifting first. I caught a sharp corner and tore my hand open.
This is gonna sound tame compared to some other replies here.. Probably a toss-up between sunburn/muscle strain, chillblains and a kidney infection here.
Sunburn was from spending most of a very hot and sunny day at the beach on a seaside holiday some years ago. Had to get up during that night and the pain in my calves nearly had me on the floor - was an intense burning or tearing kind of pain. I couldn't stand with my legs straight for some days after that - was an awesome holiday though, so worth it I have pretty sensitive skin here, and during winter the backs of my hands tend to dry out something awful despite the use of gloves. In winter 2010 the skin got so bad that it was starting to crack and bleed. Needless to say I couldn't stand to have anything touch the backs of my hands. As for the kidney infection... Think of a crushing pain either side of the lower back, near the hips. That persisted for a couple of weeks until I zapped it with antibiotics.
When I was like 10, I somehow got an impacted bowel. Thought it was my appendix at first and spent literally SIX HOURS in the ER waiting to be seen. I had a fever and I was crying in pain. Luckily it wasn't my appendix, but the pain kept getting worse so my parents thought I'd ruptured. Imagine the worst food poisoning pains of your life shooting across your torso, and you can't fart or poop to get rid of it. I get pretty bad monthly lady cramps, and this hurt worse than those.
My large intestine was on the verge of ripping itself apart from all the pressure.
The culmination was a doctor with sausage hands shoving his finger up my ass to check for rectal swelling. I was sent home with an enema, and that was the most painful shit of my life.
I still don't even know why my bowel impacted like that. I'm still afraid it'll happen again.
Ever since primary school i have had injuries almost everyday. One day i was winded by a ball, the next i tripped down the stairs. Yeah. Accident prone But the worst would be having been hit by a blue van 2 years ago in year 7 (i was 11 at the time) so yeah, a night in hospital and 1 month off school

Being tazed after a deputy sheriff in the county jail here provoked me into a reaction. He had been withholding my medications for over 48 hours and I was screaming for them constantly, he is a jerk and I still fear him to this day.
The pain was strong, and he could have killed me because I have heart rhythm problems and have been showing some small signs of cardiomyopathy over the past 8 years.
I was once playing netball at school, and I ran in, a girl threw a ball (badly) at me it it hit me in the neck, knocking all my breath out of me, and then some girl tripped me up and I went rolling across the concrete netball court. I literally couldn't breathe. Then the teacher ordered me to get up, until she realised I was really hurt and sent me off with my friend to the nurse.
One time in sixth grade when I was coming home from camp, I had a sliver in the heel of my left foot, so I had to wait until I got home so that my dad could use his pocket knife the get the sliver out. It was really painful.
It was a boobytrap left behind by a some terrorist asshole. The house was a suspected bomb making house. After kicking in the door I am the rear security at the back of the entery team. I turn around and face the outside of the door. When I do the last thing I see is this hot flash. Then...Boom! It felt like I rolling my back in a pile of fire ants. My legs, ass, and the back of my arms are peppered by small shrapnel. It burned at it stung horribly. Like a red hot poker from a bee sting was hitting you in the same places over again and again.
You couldn't lie down without it burning so badly. Sleeping on either side was just as bad.
Dislocated my knee when is was 15 playing a game of rugby, someone decided to just tackle my leg and not me. Fell to the floor stood back up on it thanks to the adrenaline but then felt the pain. After a while though I was more cold than in pain and wanted to curl up to keep warm, I pulled me legs together close to my chest and my knee clicked back into place. I still play rugby now but still have that cold chill down my back when I think about that injury.
When I broke my hand. It hurt so much, I couldn't breathe or talk properly. But the first doctor who looked at my hand said that my hand was not in need of an x-ray and that everything would be fine in the morning. I didn't sleep that night, my hand was on fire from the pain and its size was twice as big in the morning. I went to the ER and explained what had happened and what the first doctor had told me. They decided to x-ray and it turned out my hand was broken in three places and my little finger had been dislocated. (!) How on Earth did that first doctor not see that?!
I will remember that painful night until the day I die.

My 4-year-old son was 9 pounds, I was in labor with him for 28 hours, and I gave birth to him at home, completely natural with no Dr. or midwife; I also had my twins (6 pounds each) after 30 hours of labor the same way.
The only thing that's even came close to that pain was when I was when I compressed 4 discs in my back when I was working stock at a grocery store. A co-worker and I were unstacking boxes. He was on a lift about 8 feet up, and while moving boxes around, one box fell off. I didn't know if whatever was in it would break if it hit the ground, and didn't expect it to be that heavy, so I caught it and messed my back up. It's caused my discs to start to deteriorate, and I've been on 12.5mcg. of Fentanly since it happened in 2007.
Having a concussion because I hit my head on a door Fracturing my elbow (and having to sit for several hours with no pain relief apart from an icepack because my school 'nurse' couldn't recognise a fracture) Badly spraining my leg during camp, I couldn't walk properly for a month as I kept nearly falling over whenever I walked oh and I did this several nights before the end of the camp so instead of getting to go home I had to finish the camp with an injured leg The time I feel over and really badly grazed my face, mainly because I went to college and it was quite cold and windy so the wind kept stinging where I'd grazed myself
I fell off my horse once and fractured three of my ribs, nearly stabbing myself through the lungs with my own ribs it got to the point where not even the morphine could numb the pain. I'd... Prefer not to do that again.
Numbing shots. I got local anesthetic for a foot surgery before, and even through the haze of my valium, those shots hurt like a mofo. It's horribly ironic that something meant to block pain is so painful at first. What was REALLY horrible, though, was when I was still feeling a bit of pain during the surgery, so the doctor gave me another shot... STRAIGHT into the nerve since, you know, my foot was already open and he could see the nerve I was still feeling... I feel a little sick just thinking about how that felt even now, almost four years later. Aughhh.
Ok this is going to sound tmi so I will make it not so specific. It was that time of the month, and I had the worst cramps I've ever had. I've had painful cramps before, but this time was no comparison. I consider myself able to deal with pain. So I was in the shower when this happened, it was so painful that I passed out on the bathroom floor. Thank goodness I came to soon.. and had enough energy to put on my clothes and lay on the couch...where I had even more cramps that lasted for an hour. It took a long time for the medicine to kick in. I still remember the pain. Later I found out I have a disease called endometriosis. Now I'm on birth control, and life is soooo much better. :3
Glad I'm not the only one. People think it's ridiculous when you complain about cramps, but I have also passed out from the pain of those before. I was so embarrassed about it I considered just manning (Womanning? ) up and sitting through class with it, but I called my mom instead and was so glad, because I passed out in the car on the way home. If I hadn't been with her I would've keeled over in the middle of class and would never have lived down the humiliation.
I actually had a pelvic ultrasound just a few weeks ago to investigate the pain and the irregularity of it. I'm curious to see if I may have that as well - did you ever get that test done?
No, the test I got done was a laproscopy (a very mild surgery), where they make a tiny hole and look around inside your abdomen. They found lots of scar tissue they cauterized. Scary stuff! I have a little scar above my belly button and another over to the side. (one for the camera, one for the cauterizer) My insurance covered most of it I think.
