    cystitis. Man alive, I remember laying in the fetal position in agony, jealous of the furniture because it has no feeling.
    All I felt was wood.

    I've been scrolling through all the posts and to my shame I must admit that my cheeks are drenched with tears! Some of these 'accidents' are hilarious - mainly the ones from gentlemen painfully reminiscing about testicular injuries!!
    My most painful experience ever was probably suffering from sinusitis, which I am now an annual sufferer of. My gums soon doubled in size and my teeth twisted and contorted in them. The pain that resulted from the mouth changes was also accompanied by severe droning headaches, a throat infection and constant ear ache. Apparently there is little the doctors can do except continue to refer me to a ENT specialist at first incidence of the condition.
    I've been privy to many accidents that the sufferers of which may say was the worst pain they had ever experienced. The funniest was probably watching my then boyfriend playing basketball, jump for the basket, and then hit the ground like a sack of potatoes. Not only had the guard who was jumping with him punched him right in the 'wedding vegetable', as was termed earlier, but he had also broken his Achilles tendon. While it might not have been funny to him (he spent 30 minutes rolling around on the floor waiting for the ambulance) it was perhaps one of the funniest things I had ever seen in my nearly 18 years of life.

    Another occasion where I was 'fortunate' enough to view not one but two accidents was a couple of summers ago. I was doing some photography with some skaters at the skate park one afternoon with a fellow photographer. The first accident came when we were shooting some jumps and ramp work from off the floor, our cameras 'protecting our faces'. I'd finished with my skater and so we sat and joked with friends as we waited for the other pair to finish.

    The skater set off down the ramp, up over the edge and soared through the air before landing the trick perfectly upon the photographer's face. Bits of camera littered the tarmac and blood poured from under its body work. The skater returned to the poor chap he'd just crushed and pulled him to his feet. With blood pouring from his nose, lips and forehead, the young man's face was impregnated with shards of plastic and tarmac. He seemed okay other than the facial injuries and the worrying amount of blood that was pooling around his feet. We dialed for an ambulance and off he went.

    After seeing this accident most of us were sobered to the dangers of the skate park and photography when mixed together. We all continued to stay down the park, some only left to go to the local supermarket and buy alcohol, bread and ice lollies. On their return from the shop, my best friend, Jake, had a grin slapped upon his face as he rode into the skate park in a shopping trolley *** chariot. So proud was he with his acquisition that he decided to give up with his skateboard and ride the trolley up and over the ramps. He decided he wanted to try a half with the trolley and so three of us lugged the metal carcass up to the top of the ramp before sliding down and clambering up the other side and taking our prime viewing seats. Jake positioned the trolley on the lip of the ramp before getting in. Another friend performed final checks of the trolley before handing Jake his helmet.

    Jake gave us a salute and was given one big push off of the ramp's edge. Down the ramp he shot before coming off of it half way down. The trolley chariot ploughed straight into an iron fence that surrounded the park. Clearly distressed, Jake was thrashing around in his once beloved chariot, whaling in pain. We rushed over to him, laughing our heads off. The laughing soon stopped, with a thud when another skater fainted to the floor, on sight of the mess Jake had made. Peering into the trolley cart, Jake's thigh bone had snapped clean in half and the top half had penetrated the skin completely. One of his lower leg bones had also snapped in two, and the lower half had burst through the skin covering his shin. The ambulance was called again by another skater and soon it arrived. Into the back of it piled Jake, who had blacked out soon after the accident, the young guy who had fainted at first sight of the war wound and myself, who being of the more gentle sex, had vomited violently as a result of Jake’s blood and tissue dribbling onto my shoes.
    Never again will I offer to take photographs for skaters or let Jake ride in a shopping trolley.

    I was about 10, on a bike, new skatepark had just opened down near this park.

    No one else was there, so for whatever reason I decided to try and go up this ramp on my bike. It was about 5 feet tall and was not enclosed, so you could go off the side of it.

    Went up it at speed, was launched about a kilometre into the air, and something went wrong mid-air. I fell off the bike and instead of landing back on the ramp, I landed on the ground beside the ramp, 5 foot lower than the ramp and a lot lower than the bike that was still in orbit.

    I hit the ground and felt like my lungs had been crushed by Fat ******* from Austin Powers. Lay there for about 5 seconds.

    Then the bike landed on me.

    Yeah this, surprised someone hadn't mentioned needing the toilet badly before. That is the most excruciating pain that people tend to suffer quite a lot, but again, forget how bad it is until they hold it for too long lol

    Most painful experience for me was having my coil put in. Ouch! I've never really done anything that I remember (I broke my arm in three places but went into shock and don't really remember having any pain).

    However, I did work at a paintball field for a while, so I saw people shot in the throat, in the 'special area', I saw people with dislocated joints (to this day I have no idea how he did it), the whole works.
    OMG, yes, having an IUD put in was the worst pain for me too. It felt like being stabbed, or like someone was slicing your insides open - the kind of pain that leaves your whole body shaking uncontrollably. I went into shock afterwards and lost consciousness. Was in so much pain I couldn't walk after it

    My worse was a self-inflicted chemical burn. For two days it was so painful that I couldn't move my arm without practically screaming in pain, but dismissed it as it starting to heal.
    The day after it was looking a bit green and gooey so I showed it to a nurse, who sent me to A&E. They ran saline over it while picking the skin off and wiping it over with a cloth/dressing thing. I can't even describe how much that hurt, the thought of it still makes me shiver. I am the sort of person who will shut their eyes and try and stay quiet whatever pain they are in, but I spent the whole time swearing at the poor nurse. I had to take a bucket-load of anti-biotics and have the dressing changed every few days, which again really hurt. Then the itching started.

    When I was in year 9 someone swung a rounders bat back and hit me right in the face. I burst into tears and my teacher asked why I was crying about it :reaper:

    When I was 10 my class went ice skating. I put my hand down on the bench as I was sitting down. Someone climbed over from the row behind. Luckily he didn't press down, but his skate went over my middle finger and it hurt like ****. It didn't break the skin, but I had a horrible bruise for weeks. I skill can't watch ice skating without freezing when anyone falls over.

    Aww I can sympathise! I used to get it due to hayfever in the summer and colds in the winter, so essentially most of the year...controlled with steroids, ish, though I had to also take non-prescription painkillers at least twice a day. When my sense of smell started to go I saw an ENT consultant, got some scans to prove it was my sinuses not a brain problem and then got an operation, which consisted of several different procedures, including an FESS and electro-cauterization of my turbinates and septum realignment. If it's something you ever get to consider, I'd really recommend it - was pretty unpleasant at the time, but recovery is quite fast and I've had absolutely no nasal problems since about 2 weeks afterwards, as well as having my sense of smell slowly recover from all the steroids and I can now breathe much better than I ever used to be able to.

    Anyway, this thread: Toss up between car accident aged about 7, which gave me pretty severe concussion and some neck injuries (days before regular CT scans, so I was just given some painkillers and parents told to wake me up regularly and check I was ok...apparently now they tend to take people straight in to check no serious head injuries) and a really awful cramp i got down all one side; I was asleep on the sofa and it was so bad it woke me up and caused me to fall off and roll around on the floor in agony for about 20 minutes, I had bruises for a week!

    I haven't really had any agonising pain - what should have been painful was falling off a skating slope and smacking my teeth on concrete (1 of them died...) but, everything went numb the instant I hit the ground. Only 5 minutes later was there a slight dull ache. So pretty painless, even most of the root canal I had to have afterwards.

    Compared to some of these stories I'm going to sound like such a little girl, but oh well.
    Ear infection was my worst, cos it started off with just my inner ear swelling up, and a little bit of discomfort, and then it got so much worse. Woke up in the middle of the night, felt like the side of my face had been pounded by a boxer for the last few hours, it was all down my face, jaw and inside my gums. Plus there was still the pain inside my ear which was now completely closed so I was near enough deaf on one side. That was a nice couple of days and nights where it would all just come and go intermittently.

    ...Trust me, it was worse than it sounds.

    Having a tennis ball smash into my eye after rebounding off my racket (I was learning to play, and quite badly at that!). I couldn’t open my eye for hours afterwards because it was watering so much and hurt so badly.

    Also falling out of a tree, landing on my back, and having the wind knocked out of me. It was quite a terrifying experience; I remember everything slowed down like I was in a movie, only to go back to normal when I started to gasp for air.
