    I sprained my ankle a few weeks ago and I literally thought I had broken my foot and that I was going to have a cast etc. I end up getting ibuprofen haha, it is the most painful thing I've ever experienced too, my foot was huuuugeee none of my shoes fit so I wore a massive sock instead... so embarassing
    It's awful isn't it?! It sounds like such a silly thing when people are talkibg about dislocations and shattering bones and all that but it's sooo painful lol.
    To be fair I've not experienced an actual broken bone though, I'm sure there are more painful things out there :p:

    I was playing bowling and then our game ended. So, I thought it would be a good idea to be badass and throw a bowl down the closed lane. I did, thought I had broke the machine as the bowls had stopped back up the track thing. I stuck my hand in the machine, it came back on and BAM! start screaming for help. Bad thing was they had to manually shut it, so it took ages. So yeah, never stick your hand in a bowling machine

    Doctors trying to my arm back into its socket for 5 hours...

    During this time one doctor thought it was back in place, lifted the arm up to test mobility but it was in a different place. It felt like he was trying to snap my collar bone in half using my arm, which also felt like it was about to break.

    There was lots of other stuff happening, but thanks to the drugs I dont remember much! But yeah... Of what I do remember, those 5 hours sucked.

    Worst part was is that it was for nothing! They put me to sleep in the end with general anesthetic so they could be as rough as they wanted.

    EDIT: Oh and there was a time while I was in Italy and the arm fell out of its socket then. I fell off a bed backwards and it popped out, which meant I wasnt able to walk or get up. In England this wouldn't be a problem as paramedics are trained and give you the gas, however Italian paramedics are not trained...

    They flung me around, caught my arm on walls, took me on a bumpy 1 hour ambulance ride then I was sitting in hospital for a good 4 hours waiting to have the arm put back in place.
    Wow how bad was the original dislocation? A nurse managed to put mine back in in about 10 minutes with my dislocation, didn't really hurt much either. I guess it must vary a lot.

    Its tough between these three -

    1. Getting attacked by a dog, which ripped chunks of skin from my groin and inner thigh.

    2. Getting glassed in the face.

    3. Having two bulging discs in my neck, right beneath my skull.

    All unbearably painful.
    yikes :eek:

    props to you for even being here to tell the tale! x

    A dislocation in January took about 30 mins to put back in place. They tried by wearing the muscle out (with a 2 kg bag...) and when that didnt work, the nurses did it manually and everything was fine.

    Then in February (4 days before an operation to fix it), it popped out again. Apparently it was the same kind of dislocation as then January one, however it was further away from the socket.

    When my surgeon heard the story (he was private) he laughed and said due to how open my shoulder had become due to the dislocations it should have been easy to put in. I think it was just incompetent doctors, not a severe injury...

    Weird, I got excruciating headaches with both of them. Should have really specified, because I think without the headaches they'd have been.. well, not alright.. but more manageable.

    Almost unbearable - and to this day, unexplained - stomach pains, from which I passed out and vomited a few times. I've never had anything like it since either, and I'm a massive hypochondriac who freaks out when I have a headache so I would have noticed.
    Also I've had a bad back for about 6 years, but it doesn't trouble me as much as it used to.

    Firstly,I fell head first off a 6 foot wall and landed on my shoulder...omg ouch, dont think I broke anything but i coudnt use my arm, without severe pain, for months after, was about a year until it was completely right.

    secondly, injured my back which was pretty sore, but then months later, out of the blue, developed siatica. Couldnt move without shooting pains up and down my legs and back, sat bolt upright on a dining room chair and dosed myself up on painkillers for a few days until it got a bit better. eventually needed physio to completely cure it, still have back pain but no sciatica thankfully!

    I made myself Horlicks with near boiling milk, I then proceeded to leave the kitchen and upon doing so, slipped, and poured the contents of the molten malty beverage onto my foot.

    Burning...blistering...explosion . Needless to say, ouch.
