getting stabbed by a needle during vaccination is painful for me but when i share my experience everyone calls me a baby/wuss. But in reality it would hurt otherwise medieval knights wouldnt use swords to stab each other. But everyone pretends its not painful in order to avoid being called a wuss. Why cant people be honest and just admit getting stabbed violently by a needle hurts?

People's experiences are different. My first vaccination was so painless I actually doubted that I had even been vaccinated but the second was slightly painful like a sharp scratch. Not really comparable to being stabbed though :rolleyes:

It doesn't hurt most of the time. The last time I got vaccinated the needle was out of my arm before I knew it was in my arm. Also, swords would hurt infinitely more than a needle.

Pain is relative. Needles do hurt, I agree, but they hurt less than other things, and some people have a higher pain tolerance than others.

It's all up to how much you dislike the pain from a needle - it's a bigger issue for some than others.

I guess people’s tolerance to pain varies

hmm
yeh ig it's annoying when people say the injections don't hurt or that you'll definitely won't feel the vaccine at all !!! when for a lot of people they would at least feel the sharp object penetrating their muscle

Personally I found it didn't hurt, the fitst I ddin't even feel go in. I am used to having blood tests though so maybe that's why.

Because it's relatively painless, trivial, not worth mentioning and on a par with pinching your skin. By the time you can complain about it, it's already over.

Because it doesn't, it can range from completely painless (legit not feeling it) to very mild pain. Perhaps not everyone experiences pain the same way though so it's not something we can talk about really.

Pain is a very subjective thing. So perhaps it does hurt you, while others feel nothing. Personally, I don't quite enjoy injections, but that's almost entirely because you know that you'll be stabbed and it's the anticipation that's the worst part. The needle itself feels like nothing.

On a less serious note, I highly doubt that a vaccine needle feels the same as being run through with sword

It depends how it's done. My second covid jab was barely any pain at all as the person who did it was so skillful. My mum barely had any pain either. I use emla cream as my skins is sensitive to the friction of needles. If you are getting a jab, relax your body and avoid tension. That's another way to reduce pain when having jabs. Is that OK?

Its like a very mild pinch, yes you feel it but no its not bad (at least in my experience) and its over very quickly.

It varies from person to person - all I feel is a cold sensation. And it's definitely not comparable to getting stabbed by a sword, the needles are TINY.

As someone who has been poked with a needle and with a sword, the sword was definitely worse.

I didn't feel the first one and the second didn't 'hurt' as much as simply registered as being touched
