Worse physical pain you ever had?

For me it was a sore throat. I had soar throats all the time so I thought nothing of it. I did the typical things you do for a sore throat, cough drops, vicks, honey lemon tea, gargle with salt water, ibuprofen for pain, sprays. Nothing work. It felt like I was swallowing broken glass. Couldn't take it anymore so I went to the ER. Turns out I had some kind of infection, throat was full puss. Of course I needed to take the biggest pill ever, but an hour later I felt way bettter. So what is your worse physical pain you ever had? Fixed that for ya Trivia

Sciatica.

It takes the breath out of me. Knock on wood, I've not had a spell of it since 2008 or so. But it started in the mid-90s, and got progressively worse every year. I can't walk for about two weeks, can't pull my own pants up after going to the bathroom, can barely shower. Only the couch or my roommate's bed was remotely comfortable. The soreness eventully goes away, but it's a slow process, and nothing is great for another couple of months.

More recently, from mother's day until sometime in September, I was having gum and tooth pain that was just unreal. No idea what was causing it and nothing helped to relieve it. It's over now.

And I've stapled my finger, stepped on a 2" flat screw that went flush into my heel, sewed the sewing machine needle through my finger tip, sliced through my fingernail and tip with a knife while chopping herbs, and got my fingers caught in a bike chain when I was 7, broken arm, broken leg. Sciatica is still 100% worse.

Thought maybe you caught a cold on a flight to Minneapolis or sumfin'. lol

But seriously, that throat thing, with the puss etc, sounds really nasty. That's way beyond a typical scratchy throat.

It's like I can see the future, and it will be you getting the reference.

lol I was ready.


Um, a pulled muscle in my back from cycling of all things, I refused to take meds for. It took 8 months for it to completely subside and allow me to touch the floor again.
Time keeps on slipping into the future...


This moment is all there is...

Body pain for years starting from a back injury years ago, it comes and goes now. I was told fibromyalgia, but I don’t think it is since I haven’t been in pain for some time

Given that I'm due to give birth in the next 5-6 weeks, I don't really want to tempt fate but child birth is not the worst pain I've ever endured. The worst physical pain I've ever had is definitely a herniated disc in my lower back. I was rehearsing for a show but was too lazy to properly stretch beforehand so when it came time to do a back handspring (which I'd done hundreds of times before with no issue) my body kind of seized up and I ended up landing awkwardly. It didn't hurt initially but over the next few hours it got progressively worse until I literally couldn't move. After a lot of medication and a lot of physical therapy it got a bit better but every now and then I'd get flare ups and be right back where I started. Eventually, a couple of years ago, I had surgery to remove the damaged disc and it's been ok ever since. I still get the odd pain from time to time but nothing like it was before. And, as an added bonus, having not attempted a back handspring in 10 years, I was happy to discover I can still do it. lol

An infected wisdom tooth... The right side of my jaw swelled to twice its normal size and had the most godawful stabbing pain--worse than childbirth. Yeah, that bad. razz lol Painkillers didn't help. Thank God I was able to get emergency surgery and have it removed.

No it was for a play. Grease. But replacing the 50s theme with the an 80s theme. It was kind of crap to be honest. The kind of thing that's more enjoyable for the actors than the audience. I've done a lot of those lol

Sandy. I've been in various productions of Grease. Always playing Sandy. There was talk of doing a gender-swapped version at one point where I would have played Dani Zuko, a female version of Danny. It never happened in the end. And I'm probably too old to play a teenager now sad

It's probably a tie between three things. A bad case of strep throat(couldn't eat, and it was torture to even swallow), chronic back and leg pain(most likely fibromyalgia or sciatica, one time i couldn't walk for almost two weeks), and a fractured shoulder(i assume). The shoulder injury happened when i fell off a bike and landed(with all my weight) on my left shoulder. This happened when i was a teenager, and still to this day(exacerbated by a weight lifting injury that came later) i have issues with said shoulder. Also pulled muscles can be extremely painful(especially stomach). The funny thing is, one time i accidentally shot myself(with a .25) in the thigh, and that didn't hurt all that much. It just felt really hot. Go figure. shrug

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

So would the Sandy character be called Andy? Come to think of it they did the cross gender swap with Grease 2 and we all know how that turned out.
