    A good strong hit on the knee is always pretty bad as well, but it's a lot more short lived pain.
    ffff- half of what finger? like literal half or just the tip?

    Hmm.. the tip, and then some more. But yeah, not literal half.

    Tried to jump over a fence. Only one leg made it the other side.

    Also, a big fat fart that somehow got trapped hurts very much.

    The doctors said that I was not supposed to be alive, I had appendicitis for months. They said that the only thing that saved me were "fat packs" that surrounded it and stopped it from leaking. ahh good times

    OH YES. THIS. Sciatica. I cried myself to sleep, and, sleep never really came, because there was not a single position that my leg could be in, without intense pain shooting up my whole leg. Couldn't walk properly, couldn't stand for more than a minute, couldn't sit in one position for too long. It seemed like the best thing would be to chop off the leg.

    Nerve pain trumps muscle pain, by far.

    And, I had it for 2 weeks, the peak intensity of pain, and 2 months in total. I remember thinking of those who suffer from chronic pain, and how absolute hell-on-earth, it would be.

    As a kid, up to my mid-teens, I had a lot of random incidents/"genius ideas", that has left me with a total of over 50 stitches on my face, but not a stitch anywhere else on my body. My teeth splitting my bottom lip cleanly into two halfs, the gum detaching from the bottom front teeth area, and all that flesh all hanging about, to my curiosity, was kinda epic. Although, I can't remember the pain associated with those things, just blood everywhere. Shock probably set in.

    I had first- to third degree burns on my arm, and I got bad kind of treatment for it. The burns were astonishingly painful.

    Both occasions of having broken my leg in sports were less painful.

    Sinus surgery. It was supposed to be minimal 'out-patient' stuff, but the doc didn't use a long enough needle to deliver anesthetic to the back of my sinus, so when he went to use the electrode (to shrink my turbinates) he was digging it into tissue that I could fully feel...
    Anyway, I got through the whole procedure, but started to go into shock as I drove home. It was like the movie Marathon Man

    Electrocution hurts.

    OMG! Two solid weeks of that?? Mine was at least only sporadic and even then it turned me into a quivering, crying puddle of pain on the floor.

    I had some pain relief during childbirth, but never an epidural and even a nasty, nasty forceps delivery with a baby that resisted being positioned correctly didn't beat the sciatica pain. The other baby deliveries were comparative blips. At least I knew it wouldn't last more than 24 hours!
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

He didn't remove them, but apparently there were tiny little things inside of them, for which he removed some skin and then he pulled them out with a pincet. Terribly painful and it didn't help at all. Then he told me to do this exact same thing too once a week until the warts were gone. A few months later we went to Hungary and my mother's friend, who is a pharmacist, gave us these strips that did help remove the warts. They were gone within a week. Hooray for Hungarian pharmacists!
    Ha! I can't believe it that a doctor would do that! Because, when I was something like 13, I did exactly the same. I had the warts in my feet like a month and thought they would go away, but they didn't, so I thought that I will dig them up. I did so with my swiss knife. The other one didn't grow back but the other one did, so I had to repeat the procedure a couple of times.

    But, to answer the opening post, I don't recall experiencing much pain. I've had many kind of "flesh wounds", like scissors stuck in my feet and so on, but this kind of pain is maybe the easiest to tolerate. It doesn't hurt too long. Burns are quite annoying. I don't think I have ever broken bones. The worst thing that comes to mind was pneumonia, I woke up many times a night because I couldn't breathe. But that isn't really pain, but the fear of suffocation. Once I had really nasty stomach flu that my friends brought from India (do NOT drink tea on the shores of Ganges, the water is taken from the river and you know the things that goes into the river?), I had everything come out of me like from a fountain. It lasted a day and it hurt quite a lot.

    Mostly I am in pain because of my back. I think I am built wrong. It's nothing big but it can last for months.
